China treating coronavirus with convalescent plasma

China National Biotec Group (CNBG) said on Friday it developed a treatment for the coronavirus COVID-19 using convalescent plasma from some patients who recovered from the disease.

The company stated that clinical tests showed patients' symptoms improved 12 to 24 hours after receiving the newly developed therapy. CNBG pointed out it started collecting plasma from recovered patients on January 20 and began treating "critically ill" patients in Wuhan on February 8, stressing over 10 patients have received the treatment.

Earlier, Chinese authorities confirmed that over 64,000 people have been infected with COVID-19, with more than 1,380 dying from the virus.
