Owner of New York Knicks help in the Battle of Covid-19

James Dolan, the owner of New York Knicks, who has recovered from the coronavirus, hopes to aid others to battle the disease. A spokesperson for the National Basketball Association franchise told the New York Post and ESPN that the 64-year-old contributed blood to the Duke University Medical Center and NYU Langone Health, where he is expected to contribute plasma in several medical facilities. Scientists believe that plasma from those who have recovered from Covid-19 can be helpful when given to sick patients due to an increase in virus-fighting antibodies.

Last month, Dolan tested positive but apparently never developed significant symptoms. He had tested negative recently. He proceeded to perform his job by managing the Knicks and Madison Square Garden. Several media sources have confirmed that this week Dolan told arena workers that they will be paying up to May 31, upholding an earlier promise that they will retain their salaries until May 3.

More than 138,000 individuals have been tested positive for the coronavirus as of Wednesday, according to the New York City website. Nearly 10,000 deaths have been reported attributed to Covid-19, with another 5,000 identified as having the virus as the probable cause.
