Can COVID-19 Be Treated? Does Blood From Survivors Help? Experts Answer Our Questions on A…On January 20, just a day before the coronavirus officially showed up in the United States, and more than a month before the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic, doctors in China launched a five-person clinical trial to test whether plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients could help treat others in critical condition. Within days of receiving this plasma, four of the five patients began to recover—and as of late last week, three of the patients had been discharged, and two were in stable condition. The results are preliminary, of course, but early studies like this, plus the long history of successful plasma treatments, offer a promising option to help some patients with severe cases among the 1 million globally who’ve contracted the coronavirus. “Convalescent plasma,” as plasma from survivors is called, is now being…

We May Never Know the Virus’s Real Body Count

We May Never Know the Virus’s Real Body CountWe rely on numbers to understand the size and scope of tragedy—to gauge what went wrong and put the damage in perspective. More Americans have now died from the coronavirus than were killed in the September 11 terrorist attacks, multiple news outlets announced yesterday.But we likely won’t have an estimate of how many Americans have died as a result of the pandemic for a very long time—maybe months, maybe a year. We will almost certainly never know the exact number. “It sounds like it could be totally obvious—just count body bags,” John Mutter, an environmental-science professor at Columbia University who studies the role of natural disasters in human well-being, told me in an interview this week. “It’s not obvious at all.”When Hurricane Maria flattened Puerto Rico in September 2017, the storm’s devastation was overwhelming.
