Nick Saban, head football coach at the University of Alabama, said an intravenous plasma treatment helped improve his symptoms after he had tested positive for COVID-19.

“I’m feeling great,” he said. “I had one of those IV deals, Wednesday morning a week ago – the plasma treatment, whatever it’s called. And it really worked.”

Saban made his comments on Thursday during his weekly radio show, “Hey Coach With Nick Saban.”

“I woke up the next day and I really only had slight symptoms of a head cold, maybe a little cough, so I felt like I had a cold,” Saban said. “But that’s about it. I didn’t feel bad. I didn’t have a fever but whatever was in this plasma deal, it knocked it all out in one day.

“So from Thursday on, I felt great and 100% and I would certainly recommend that treatment to anybody who can get it.”

AL.com noted the treatment involves injecting the plasma taken from the blood of people who have recovered from the coronavirus.

Saban has been cleared to coach on Saturday.
