President Trump Announces Emergency Authorization of ‘Breakthrough’ Convalescent Plasma Treatment for Covid-19 Patients

President Trump on Sunday authorized the FDA to use convalescent plasma to treat COVID-19 patients, calling it a ‘breakthrough treatment.’ 
“This is a powerful therapy that transfuses very very strong antibodies from the blood of recovered patients to help treat patients battling a current infection,” Trump said. 
“Based on the science and the data, the FDA has made the independent determination that the treatment is safe and very effective,” Trump said urging all recovered COVID-19 patients to donate their blood plasma.
