LAS VEGAS, May 11, 2020 –
Currently, there are no vaccines or proven treatments for COVID-19 because the virus is so new. Although trials for a vaccine are underway, it is expected to be many months before one is approved. Completely recovered COVID patients may have immune-boosting antibodies in their plasma - called convalescent plasma - that could be used to treat critically ill patients.
First units from donated plasma are returned to the donation location. Southern Nevada patients will be among the first to benefit from these donations.
