Governor Kevin Stitt, who recovered from COVID-19, donated convalescent plasma this week in an effort to help patients recover from the virus.

In July, Gov. Stitt announced that he tested positive for the virus. Now that he recovered, he's urging Oklahomans who've beat the virus to help others. Stitt said one donation can save up to four people.
