  1. Radiolab recently had an episode that mentioned this.

    If you have had COVID-19 not long ago and want to donate plasma, find out more:

    Or if you know someone who has COVID-19 and is out of options, ask about that.

    While it is useful as an option for patients who have used up other ones, it is not super scalable so it is not for everyone.

    Edit: Forgot the Radiolab episode.

  2. If you have the money, you can get the miracle shot but as usual supplies are limited.

  3. Damn, that literally felt like the plot of the Flu (2013).

  4. A trial with such small numbers is essentially meaningless.

    Even assuming a 30% death rate for the demographic (which is far above WHO estimates), doing literally anything has a 50/50 probability of having both patients survive. That’s just math.

    .7*.7= .49 (Ie, probability to survive by chance raised to the number of patients receiving treatment.)

    This may be an effective treatment, but this study does not prove it.

  5. I need some chinesium uigher blood
