Governor Andrew M. Cuomo Encourages Recovered COVID-19 Patients to Donate Plasma with NYBC

In his daily COVID-19 briefing, Governor Cuomo highlighted the need for convalescent plasma donations, appealing to those who have recovered from COVID-19 to help save the lives of patients with the virus.

CONVALESCENT PLASMA DONATION

JOIN OUR FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19

NYBC is now increasing the nation’s supply of convalescent plasma by collecting donations from those who have recovered from COVID-19. NYBC will collect, process the plasma for infusion, and maintain a bank for hospitals to treat patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. We are asking all eligible donors to come forward so we can treat as many patients as possible.
