Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital says the first unit of COVID-19 convalescent plasma was transfused on Thursday.

Officials posted images of the plasma on the hospital’s official Facebook page.

The treatment uses blood from recovered COVID-19 victims.

The hospital says plasma contains antibodies capable of fighting the virus that causes the illness.
