What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is the disease caused by a virus strain that began spreading in people in December 2019.
Health experts are concerned because little is known about this new respiratory virus, and it can cause severe illness and pneumonia in some people.
- The COVID-19 virus was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
- The COVID-19 virus is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
- Formerly, this disease was referred to as "2019 Novel Coronavirus" or "2019-nCoV."
If you have fully recovered from COVID-19 and are no longer contagious, donation of your plasma could support the development of a potential treatment for individuals for whom COVID-19 presents significant risk. BioLife Plasma Services and the American Red Cross are accepting donations. You can also contact your primary care physician for more information.
