Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was declared as a world pandemic since early 2020. There was no specific antiviral agent that appeared to be active against the virus, and antiviral agent such as remdesivir, favipiravir were in limited supply. We evaluated the use of convalescent plasma (CP) administered as adjuctive treatment to standard of care in moderate to severe COVID-19 patients. We conducted a series of 9 moderate to severe patients of COVID-19 older than 18 years received CP transfusion from 9 recovered donors at a single institution (Sulianti Saroso Infectious Disease Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia) from January 2021 to June 2021. Out of 9 patients (age range 30-81 years, 6 males and 3 female), and all patients received at least 1 or 2 unit of 200 mL of CP from 9 recovered donors. There were 4 patients (age range 30-71 years, 4 male) that were not treated with antiviral therapy. Of the 9 patients, 2 severe cases were died, while all of moderate cases survived and they were discharged from the hospital (length of stay: 8-22 days). Our experience showed that CP transfusion in moderate COVID-19 patients might provide clinical benefit and it was well-tolerated. However, further development clinical trials with better designs and greater power is needed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this treatment.
