A plasma donor could help save the life of a Torrance Fire Fighter fighting COVID-19.
His fire department is doing everything they can to help. In a Facebook post on the Torrance Fire Department page, they are pleading the public to please help.
“Specifically, he needs plasma donated from a fully recovered COVID patient so their antibodies may help boost his ability to fight back,” the department said in the Facebook post.
The donor must meet several criteria:
To qualify, the donor must have tested positive for COVID-19 and already been recovered with symptoms resolved at least 28 days prior to the donation or 14 days prior to donation with a second negative COVID test. The donor should be male, or a female who has never been pregnant or who has been tested since their most recent pregnancy and results interpreted as negative for HLA antibodies.
