The medicine with antibodies against the coronavirus can be used. Thousands of recovered corona patients have donated blood plasma in recent months, and more than 4,000 doses are now available.
The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport will announce this tonight. The drug will initially be used to prevent infection and disease in people with weakened immune systems. This concerns, for example, cancer patients and people who have just undergone a transplant.
Minister Hugo de Jonge is pleased that the drug can be used. “Good work, and many thanks to everyone who donated blood.”
In addition, a study will be conducted to map out how effective this medicine is to prevent contamination of vulnerable elderly people. It is examined whether it can be given, for example, after contact with an infected person.
It is expected that a patient will need to be treated every month. The stock is therefore limited. It is expected that 4,000 doses will become available in January. ‘It therefore remains important that people donate blood; especially people who have recently recovered from a corona infection ‘, the ministry says.
After a positive corona test, patients receive a letter from the Sanquin blood bank to donate blood plasma when they feel better again.
