Abstract

The novel coronavirus (nCoV) has spread around the world as an epidemic. As of July 06, 2020, the number of victims has already crossed 11.5 million and the number of deaths has exceeded 537K and is steading rising.In the past convalescent  plasma (CCP) therapy was used in many epidemics. Already many people have successfully recovered from sever acute respiratory syndrome Corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and have developed antibodies in their plasma to fight the virus.They have this plasma very effective for critical patients. Many countries are currently trying to develop effective vaccines. They have already done various trials of their vaccines .
