An officer with the Burlingame (CA) Police Department recently recovered from COVID-19—after contracting the condition in early March. He is now trying to help others who may contract the novel coronavirus disease.

According to KGO-TV, Officer Steve Vega was fortunate enough to not have been hospitalized, but says that recovering at home was not easy.

Now that he's back on his feet after many days of pain and fear, Officer Vega is donating his antibodies in hopes of treating other COVID-19 patients.
