Moreover, almost half of them - about 50% - are residents of the capital between the ages of 26 and 40. That is, people who are in peak physical shape. Many donors and young people - more than 16% of the total number of those who donated plasma with antibodies to coronavirus - are people aged 18 to 25, the rest (more than 34%) - from 41 to 55 years,”the message says.
The press service recalled that the transfusion of donor plasma with antibodies to coronavirus is one of the experimental methods of treating patients with COVID-19, its use is recommended for use by the Clinical Committee and can significantly reduce mortality and improve the condition of patients with severe forms of the disease.
