Iím told you can donate plasma as long as you have any amount of antibodies. My question is what the avg amount of antibodies ppl are getting-it seems to vary wildly. My parents had the virus (father worse than mother) and I never showed  any symptoms Baruch HaShem. My father got 216 antibodies and I have 17. It seems weird though bc my brotherís father in law who had the virus has 2800 antibodies... is there a pattern here or what?
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

First thing to know is that there are different scales being used. You need to understand each one before making comparisons of tests, unless they are taken at the same site.

Also depends on how long passes since you recovered. After time, the amount goes down (as per a nurse)

Has plasma been working to treat Covid patients?
I see the Frum organizations are still trying to get people to donate. Theyíre having locations in lkwd and in the Catskills this week, Iím just curious if itís actually working because I havenít heard much about it.

Iím donating regular blood tomorrow. Not as exciting, but I keep hearing that blood banks have shortages. Blood donations always save lives.

I went to donate plasma, and apparently the new machines need you to have big veins (because is takes and replaces the blood in the same needle) which I dont. So I donated blood and they tagged it for plasma (so they can draw It out later if needed).
I'm not who you think I am.
