9:44 AM: Houston Methodist is the first hospital in the nation to deliver a new coronavirus treatment involving plasma transfers. The concept, according to Houston Methodist, revolves around the idea that plasma from someone who has recovered from COVID-19 contains antibodies made by one’s immune system and is used to kill the virus. Transferring that antibody-rich plasma to someone who is currently fighting the disease may transfer the power of the antibodies into a healing, possibly life-saving therapy.

The number of individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 in the Greater Houston area eclipsed 100 as of Wednesday morning but the number of cases continues to grow. The tally now stands at 1,267 cases as Galveston reached over 100 confirmed cases overnight.
