Who can donate plasma?
Answering the question, CP Shri VC Sajjanar said, one who has fully recovered from Covid-19, may be able to help other patients currently fighting the infection by donating their plasma. Because the donor has already fought the infection, their plasma now contains Covid-19 antibodies. These antibodies kick start the affected person’s immune system to fight the virus. Hence, plasma will be used to help others fight off the disease.
-Those who had the disease, but have recovered at least 14 days before the donation can be considered.
-People between the age of 18 to 60, and weighing not less than 50 kg are eligible.
It should be noted that ‘blood donation’ & ‘plasma donation’ are two different concepts. While the former includes the donation of only blood while the later includes donation of essential cells of blood, which helps an individual develop the immunity system.
The Plasma donor should be a symptomatic patient. Covid patient and who suffered with any of the symptoms like cough, cold, fever, body pain, diarrhoea etc. and recovered can only donate plasma. He/she should be completely recovered from the virus now and willing to donate plasma. It is however to be noted that people with co morbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer and other ailments are excluded.
V C Sajjanar IPS Commissioner of Police Cyberabad once again request all the Covid 19 warrior’s who have fought the virus successfully & who were symptomatic should come forward to donate Plasma. Their 500 ml Plasma will save two persons & will bring cheerfulness in the families. All such persons should contact our Cyberabad Covid control room 9490617440.
