(AmericanProsperity.com) – As COVID-19 continues to spread across the US, doctors search for new and better ways to treat their patients afflicted by the virus. While many potential cures are controversial, another treatment has been approved by the FDA, which should be less contentious in nature.
On Sunday, August 23, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the emergency use of investigational convalescent plasma to treat the novel coronavirus. In the press release, Alex Azar, the Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary, praised President Donald Trump for his recognition of the treatment early on in the fight against the virus.
Trump praised this new authorization during a press briefing on Sunday:

People who have recovered from coronavirus can donate their convalescent plasma to healthcare centers to use. The FDA reported that using this treatment “may be effective in lessening the severity or shortening the length of COVID-19 illness in some hospitalized patients.”
While there’s still no randomized clinical trial data on the treatment, the use appears promising so far. When much is unknown about how to treat coronavirus, a small step like this is a huge win for both the American people and our economy.
