Study suggests that plasma transfusions from Covid-19 survivors could boost survival rates of other patients

A study conducted by the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York suggests that a blood transfusion from patients that previously had recovered from Covid-19 could improve the survival rates of other patients. The study compares the health of 39 patients that had received the transfusion with 39 patients who didn't and was published on medRxiv in a preprint state - meaning that it still has to undergo peer-review by other researchers. The study also hasn't been randomized, but according to the researchers the study "does show promise that convalescent plasma is effective" as the research is still going on.
