We interrupt our normal FOAMcast episodes to bring you updates from COVID-19. *Our understanding of COVID-19 is rapidly developing and this may be out of date in days/weeks. So, check back for updates/fact check what you hear*

We review the evidence, to date, on convalescent plasma for the treatment of COVID-19. This includes 3 randomized trials, as well the US experience with >35,000 patients treated with convalescent plasma, a noncontrolled study by Joyner et al [pre-print].
