I’m doing testing of my own. Try Colloidal Silver.

Finally some encouraging news on this epidemic. Thanks for this informative article.

Yes, good article.

The idea of using plasma from someone who has recovered from the covid-19 infection sounds like a very promising avenue of research. It reminds me of what we were told in school of the old Chinese method of variolation to cause a mild smallpox infection, but one which resulted in immunization. Thinking outside the box can yield useful results.

Already studied, its useless and even dangerous.

This is more of the opposite, you are borrowing some of the immunity of another person to treat the infection, but as in the article mentions timing is very important, you can delay the activation of the person immunity by using it, which would give trouble with the infection later.

This is the most obvious thing you can do in infectious diseases, it is not used regularly because its risky (you never know what other pathogens the plasma have) very inefficient (you need a lot of plasma to treat a single patient) and it is not always effective. Thinking outside the box means more trying to find another solution that is better than the obvious one (in this case plasma-antibodies and antivirals)
