Humanity has witnessed a pandemic in late December or, early January. Novel corona virus nCov-19 is responsible for causing COVID-19. The first case was reported in Wuhan city, China in the month of December 2019. No specific drugs have been approved yet for its treatment, though, convalescent plasma (CP) therapy is expected to increase the survivable rate. The history of convalescent plasma therapy dates back to the early 20th century. A plethora of studies suggest that CP can be used to treat the emerging infectious diseases. We had a systematic search in PubMed and found numerous Chinese and Korean clinical trials of convalescent plasma transfusions. The present review gives an insight in to the same.
