Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday that the Delhi government would set up a 'plasma bank' to treat Kovid-19 patients as healthy plasma therapy in hospitals here has had encouraging results.

Plasma needs to be contacted here, given the need.

Who can give plasma
People who have recently recovered from Corona virus infection can donate plasma. In fact, people who are cured of corona develop an antibody inside which is capable of fighting the corona virus. Patients are treated by removing these antibodies from the blood. Corona patients have been cured to this extent to some extent.

Kejriwal said that the state government will encourage people who have recovered from Kovid-19 to donate plasma. He said that the government will also set up a helpline for information related to plasma donation.

He said that the government will make arrangements for those who are willing to donate plasma. Kejriwal said that relatives of Kovid-19 patients are free to give plasma to patients. Donating only in the bank is not necessary.
