Dr. Michael J. Tracz endorses convalescent COVID-19 plasma


Dr. Michael Tracz, MD, of Highland Medical, PC – Rockland Renal Associates, states: "I envision Plasma therapy to be a cornerstone of treatment for some time to come. Yesterday, a drug called Remdesivir was reported to have had some good results. Remdesivir stops virus from replicating and it will be used first. Plasma, on the other hand, destroys the virus that is already in the patient, so it will be used in cases that [are] a little more advanced. What will happen is we will use Remdesivir and plasma in conjunction to save as many people as we can."
