When a person recovers from coronavirus, they will likely develop antibodies that may protect them from getting it again in the near future.  East Carolina University and Vidant Health in Greenville are using donated antibodies to treat patients who are hospitalized because of the virus.  PRE’s Jared Brumbaugh spoke with the Chair of Internal Medicine at ECU’s Brody School of Medicine Dr. Paul Bolin about their part in a nationwide study, which is already showing promise.
