The players of Miami Dolphins who have recovered from the coronavirus are now helping the patients who are still battling with the virus.
Malcolm Perry and second-year linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel boarded OneBlood’s Big Red Bus on Thursday to donate their convalescent plasma.
“I was surprised initially but was happy because I was presented with the opportunity to give back and donate plasma and help people in need,” said Perry. “Being able to give back to people who weren’t fortunate enough to react the same way you did to the virus and give back to the community was important.”
The antibodies present in the plasma of those players who have recovered from COVID-19 will help in speeding up the recovery of patients who are still not cured.
“Convalescent plasma is needed now more than ever. As quickly as donations come in, they are being processed, tested, and rushed to hospitals. We are grateful to the Dolphins for their partnership and helping create awareness for people who have recovered from COVID-19 to become convalescent plasma donors. These donors hold the potential key in helping patients still fighting the virus to recover,” said Susan Forbes, senior vice president of corporate communications and public relations for OneBlood.
The staff of Dolphins and players too donated blood through OneBlood to the convalescent plasma donations.
Those who have recovered and are willing to donate can visit www.oneblood.org, register, and make an appointment to be a convalescent plasma donor.
Please note the donors must have complete resolution of symptoms at least 14 days prior to donation, and get a documented diagnosis of COVID-19 from an authorized lab or hospital, or a positive serological test for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit blood center responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 250 hospital partners and their patients throughout Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. The organization is also testing all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibodies, and those who test positive for the antibody will be eligible to become COVID-19 convalescent plasma donors.
