Small RCT with 28 early and 30 deferred (treated according to prespecified deterioration criteria) convalescent plasma patients, not showing significant differences. "Early" is relative, with a median of 5 days from symptom onset. 13 patients in the deferred group received plasma.
risk of death, 247.4% higher, RR 3.47, p = 0.17, treatment 5 of 28 (17.9%), control 2 of 30 (6.7%), adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, logistic regression, early vs. deferred.
risk of mechanical ventilation, 163.3% higher, RR 2.63, p = 0.22, treatment 5 of 28 (17.9%), control 2 of 30 (6.7%), adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, logistic regression, early vs. deferred.
risk of progression, 23.3% higher, RR 1.23, p = 0.51, treatment 13 of 28 (46.4%), control 12 of 30 (40.0%), adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk, logistic regression, early vs. deferred.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes.

Elimination of COVID-19 is a race against viral evolution. No treatment, vaccine, or intervention is 100% available and effective for all current and future variants.
