ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- After recovering from the coronavirus, Blues broadcast John Kelly donated blood plasma in hopes it helps those still battling COVID-19.
Kelly tested positive for the coronavirus in March.
He said a friend at Washington University reached out to him about participating in their study as they work to determine if plasma from recovered patients can help those actively fighting the disease.
“If I can make one person better, that’s fantastic,” Kelly told stlouisblues.com.
Modeling their work off of a treatment for the Spanish Flu in 1918, Wash U doctors are exploring the idea of transfusion of antibodies from the blood of recovered patients into people who are currently ill.
