The cure of coronavirus was unknown until now. But the blood plasma of survivors is helping and providing us hope to cure it. The WHO (World Health Organization) declares coronavirus as a pandemic because it killed over 60,000 people around the globe. This has created a sense of fear among people. Besides, lockdown is affecting the day to day routine of people. They cannot go outside their homes. They are also unable to enjoy their life like before.
Cure of Corona-virus:
Doctors have discovered the cure of coronavirus though temporary but is helpful for those who are severely affected by this virus. In the treatment of coronavirus, the blood plasma of the cured persons is taken and is infused into the victims. The antibodies in plasma (convalescent plasma) of survivors combat the pathogen in the coronavirus patients and help them in recovery from coronavirus as well as their critical state. You can also consider it as passive immunity.
Result of treatment of coronavirus in China:
It has shown a positive result like reduction in chest pain and shortness of breath in a small sample of five affected persons, as reported by China. From National Engineering Technology Research Centre for Combined Vaccines in Wuhan, Xiaoming says, “It is a promising rescue-option for severely ill patients” we need to try it on larger samples to confirm its remedial efficacy and safety. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences gives a detailed description of this pilot study.
Treatment in other Countries:
Other countries like the UK, Iran, and France are also implementing the footsteps of China. They are using this method to cure their patients of coronavirus until we find a vaccine for coronavirus. The formation and clinical trial of a vaccine or an anti-viral drug take almost a year or more.
In this hour of difficulty, we need to keep the light of hope lit in our hearts that one day these shadows of darkness are going to disappear and everything will come back to its normal state. Till then try to mark these words in your mind and heart:
“WHEN YOU FACE DIFFICULT TIMES,
KNOW THAT CHALLENGES
ARE NOT SENT TO DESTROY YOU,
THEY ARE SENT TO PROMOTE,
INCREASE AND STRENGTHEN YOU”
