NGOs have been working selflessly to respond to people’s pleas and are also encouraging Covid-recovered patients to donate plasma.

There is no doubt that people have been pretty active on social media at a time when COVID-19 transmission and oxygen crisis, just so they can help others in need for treatment. Among the posts shared, many of them have requests for convalescent plasma as it is being prescribed to many for treating the COVID-19 infection. Blood banks too have seen a rise in demand for convalescent plasma. For this, NGOs have been working selflessly to respond to people’s pleas and are also encouraging Covid-recovered patients to donate plasma, a report by The IE noted.

On April 22, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) had said that off-label use of convalescent plasma can be considered for cases with early moderate infection of Coronavirus. This is preferred within seven days after the symptoms occur as well as in specific circumstances. Experts have opined that the timing of the administering convalescent plasma is crucial during the treatment of moderately-ill Coronavirus patients.
