Of course he ends we need a vaccine......

Is it possible to use the plasma in lieu of a vaccine (at least until it's available)? So let's say every recovered patient donates, and the plasma is then given to the vulnerable population so that the only ones getting infected are the non-vulnerable among us?

Exactly...building a database like bone marrow or kidney donation.
Well first we have to know if it works and if it does let someone make profit as long as it’s saving lives
Btw there’s kidney/bone marrow  drives/orgs lshem shomyim

All I can say is my daughter, an RN treating confirmed positive patients left and right, has had symptoms like cough, slight fever, loss of taste and smell yet...tested negative for antibodies.
Has she ever tested positive?

The way they have been pushing it vs actually knowing it works are asymmetric. I'm just a skeptic. Why do they need thousands of samples?

looks like they’re  trying to prove hospitals that were skeptical to start testing the treatment due to potential lack of donors

Lol. Why is anyone even responding to his comments? Does anyone actually give them any weight?

So you’re saying there’s not a thread of fact in the Mishpacha article that claims that multiple hospitals are already testing convalescent plasma by injecting it into their patients?

What’s the issue with those databases? So what if someone makes a profit, at the end of the day they’re saving lives.

Didnt read the article. But hearing from frontline doctors that it is not the case in NY right now. They are just not doing it.

Just a transparency issue. Dont make a profit without disclosing it and dancing around like a velt's tzadik. Saving lives altruisticly and saving lives for profit are very different.

This was mentioned last month: Amex offering to defer payments with no interest for two months. Both personal and business. Anyone that did this can please advise if they froze account after blocking new purchases? I'm just looking to avoid interest can make a min. payment.

I just dropped off to at Boston Children's Hospital for someone. While most were wearing masks, a good number of people in the lobby were not wearing masks. Pretty surprised.

President Trump responded to a presentation by Bill Bryan from the Department of Homeland security on how to fight COVID-19 by suggesting that injecting the body with disinfectant could serve as treatment.
