    Delhi’s first plasma bank to help treat novel coronavirus started functioning on Thursday, with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying that COVID-19 patients can donate their plasma 14 days after recovery.

    Addressing an online media briefing, the chief minister issued phone numbers—1031 and 8800007722—where people can contact for donation of plasma to save the lives of COVID-19 patients.

    The government has set up the plasma bank at the state-run Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences.

    Kejriwal hoped that COVID-19 deaths will decrease due to plasma therapy. Those aged between 18 and 60 and weighing not less than 50 kg can donate their plasma for COVID-19 patients, he added.

    Plasma therapy involves taking antibodies from the blood of a person who has recovered from COVID-19 and transfusing those into a coronavirus-infected patient to help kick-start the immune system to fight the infection.
