Coronavirus: Plasma Treatment is Effective for Critically Ill Patients

On February 18, a news conference on the prevention and control of the epidemic situation was made by the Information Office of the People’s Government of Guangdong Province.

Nanshan Zhong, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that the recovery plasma was initially used in the H5N1 epidemic in 2005, and the viremia miraculously disappeared. This gives us great inspiration. Although it is only one case, it is also very valuable internationally. During the 2009 H1N1 epidemic, a colleague from Hong Kong made plasma of a recovering patient. There were significant differences in the case fatality rate and statistically significant differences.

It is understood that the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products has already done a good job. There are many rehabilitation patients in Wuhan. After donating blood, they are made into plasma. There is no blood group replacement in plasma.

Seventeen years have passed, and a comprehensive antibody has not yet been developed. It will take time to develop a novel coronavirus pneumonia vaccine. So far, plasma therapy is an older method, but it is definitely safe and very effective, especially for critically ill patients, but not suitable for dying patients.
