The first patients were given serum prepared from the blood plasma of recovered patients at the South Pest Central Hospital.

Although there are limitations to the treatment, several universities and research groups are working hard to expand the treatment, and a Hungarian company founded in Austria is also playing a key role in the work.

"It is a very promising treatment, the patients’ condition is improving spectacularly," said National Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller, about two patients treated with plasma therapy at the South Pest Central Hospital.
