Convalescent plasma therapy was the winner of the very first Nobel Prize for Medicine, and was very valuable for the first half of the 20th century.

I don't think FDR went on the radio to say "Give me your blood!" though. Trump may need to work on his approach.

What better reason to turn all public schools into a giant incubator, where the survivor cows can be part of the plasma harvest for those enterprising Republicans.

They will dub it -- Corona Lemonade.

It's an opinion piece. It starts with crediting Trump with the idea and IMO it's all downhill from there.

Does this mean we may all get a little bit of Tom Hanks inside us?

Well, it's better than Trump's current Coronavirus strategy of "Let Nurgle handle it'.

It has been tried with COVID-19, but most recovered people do not have very high antibody levels, so their plasma is useless.
