WHO does not recommend treating covid with plasma from people who have overcome it – Human – Science and technology


Treatment of COVID-19 with plasma drawn from the blood of recovered patients should not be given to patients who have a mild to moderate course. Recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday.

As the AFP agency points out, intravenous transfusions called According to preliminary hospital information, convalescent plasma appeared to be a potentially promising treatment for covid. The WHO now specifies in a recommendation published in the British Medical Journal that this therapy should only be used in patients with severe disease, but also as part of a clinical trial.

“Current evidence shows that (treatment) does not increase the chances of survival or reduce the likelihood that mechanical (lung) ventilation will be required, and it is costly and time consuming,” explains the WHO.

Convalescent plasma is a liquid component of blood from the body of a person who has overcome the covid. It contains antibodies that the body has naturally excreted after infection.

The WHO recommendation is based on data from 16 clinical trials involving 16,236 patients with mild, severe to very severe COVID-19.
