The effectiveness of the plasma is not fully known, so it will be tested in a trial before it can be fully rolled out.

The trial will aim to look at the effectiveness of the plasma as a treatment for COVID-19, with more hospitals taking part in the test over the coming months.
Convalescent plasma is rich in antibodies from those who have already tested positive, and then recovered from coronavirus, and can be given to those who are struggling to develop their own immune system's response.

There is some evidence that people will benefit, but its safety and effectiveness has to be confirmed before it can be used more widely.
