Abstract: Currently, there are no approved specific antiviral agents for novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Convalescent plasma has not yet been approved for use in patients with COVID-19 infection; however, it is regulated as an investigational product. This is a case report of a 55-year-old male, with COVID-19 pneumonia who has received convalescent plasma as part of a treatment plan which showed significant radiological and clinical improvement post-treatment.
