Now got many potential cures...
I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I will do my utmost to keep them alive.
Against tyrants and adversity, I will strive.
Together, a better future, we will realise......

A person who is cured has the antibodies for the virus in his blood.

This is one way to get vaccines for some diseases.

Whether it can cure successfully, only time will tell.

Hope so, though I never see ads all over the place requesting plasma to cure all other virus-diseases....just guessing as a noob only.

Anyway, hope it's real.

They are at the experimental stage, trying out with a few critically ill or near critically ill patients.

Vaccine is not the answer because it will be loaded with other agents. That's why they need many years to test it. A fast-track vaccine of 12-18mths is a bad vaccine.

They have been using plasma to help SARS patients to improve their conditions. This Taiwanese Hospital was using it in 2005

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16183666

For some patients, this method did not yield conclusive results

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16968120

There are some problems. First, not many recovered patients around; second, there is limited quantity one can extract from a person.
Today, no cure or vaccine for SARS (https://tinyurl.com/umb5wgq)
CGTN & 新华网 said pple with Wuhan virus cured (https://tinyurl.com/qrrjdr3)
