Chinese Doctors Encouraged By Promising New Therapy To Battle Coronavirus

2020-02-18 01:40:591 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Doctors in Shanghai are using infusions of blood plasma from people who have recovered from the coronavirus. According to Reuters, they're giving them to patients still battling the infection. Not only that, a Chinese professor said on Monday that the doctors are reporting some encouraging preliminary results. A top emergency expert at the World Health Organization says using convalescent plasma was a “very valid” approach to test. However, it's important to get the timing right to maximize the boost to a patient’s immunity. The coronavirus epidemic has so far killed 1,770 people and infected more than 70,000 in mainland China.
