What is COVID plasma and how can my blood help save a life?

If you’ve had COVID-19 and recovered, your blood most likely has developed antibodies that can attack the COVID-19 virus. Plasma, the component of your blood that contains antibodies, can be used to treat COVID-19 patients and give them a better chance of fighting off the virus. Similar plasma donations have been successfully used to treat severely ill COVID-19 patients across the world, and it appears to be the most effective treatment currently available.
