In a call-to-action issued online today [Wednesday, May 13], the DBBS said that initiative to encourage donations of COVID-19-immune plasma comes as the need rises “due to the increase in the number of people infected with the virus.”
In its statement, the DBBS went on to say that “initial results have shown the patients benefit from this treatment.”
