Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel F. Zubiri who has now fully recovered from COVID-19 has donated 500 ml of his blood plasma to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH), in aid of the medical community’s continuing search for COVID-19 treatment.
In his Facebook post, Senator Zubiri appealed to all recovered COVID-19 patients to apply for blood plasma donation. Accordingly, patients who were administered the plasma treatment at the PGH and St. Luke’s Medical Center showed significant improvements in their conditions. There is no approved cure for the virus as of yet, but medical experts are looking at the possibility of extracting COVID-19 antibodies from recovered individuals in order to finally come up with a treatment.
