Good news! Our retired colleague Larry Harrington and his son Griffin have recovered from COVID-19.
An excerpt from a local newspaper about the case is below:
The Food and Drug Administration approved the clinical trials of convalescent plasma collected from people who are no longer infected with COVID-19. Recovered patients carry the plasma that might have antibodies that can fight against the infection.
Larry Harrington and his son Griffin received the call from the Metro Public Health Department recently that they’re in the clear after self isolating in their home for three weeks, a week longer than the recommended amount of 14 days in the U.S. Both of them no longer showed symptoms prior to receiving the call.
“It was a nice call to get,” Larry said. “You feel a little more free to be in contact with your family but we’re still doing everything else.”
