  1. Well it was just an idea, as I said naive, or optimistic, but there have been developments today: Here is the FDA's new PSA asking for Plasma donations from COVID19 patients who have recovered. (Note it says you need a laboratory COVID19 diagnosis, but looking into this a plasma antibody test counts a laboratory diagnosis, and that test costs $160 which if student athletes are asked to VOLUNTEER the donation for NO COMPENSATION the lab/health department should pay) https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/donate-covid-19-plasma
  2. This may be naive, but isn't it about time we change the narrative on teenagers and COVID-19?As the FDA moves closer to approving using plasma as the first approved treatment to treat COVID19, I think it may be time we start looking to teenagers not just as those that don't show symptoms and may be a source of infection to our older citizens, but instead consider our teenage athletes (typically some of the healthiest of our community) may be our saving grace? Instead of wondering if we should cancel schools and cancel sports we use our varsity level athletes (Juniors and Seniors and college)
