Upon arrival to DHR Health, he presented with bilateral pneumonia and tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. After being placed on a ventilator for two weeks with minimal improvement, consent was obtained from his authorized guardian, allowing Ríos to receive a transfusion of Convalescent Plasma. One day after the transfusion Ríos’ condition started to improve and he was removed from his ventilator. Ríos is now on the road to full recovery.
