PESHAWAR: Counselor Chief Information Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ajmal Wazir has appealed to coronavirus patients recovering from infection to donate blood plasma, ARY News reported on Tuesday.
Speaking to the media in Peshawar, he said that the Hayatabad Medical complex had begun a plasma transfusion test to treat COVID-19 patients and two doctors had also donated blood plasma.
He also urged people to maintain social distance during the Eid holiday because the threat of the virus still exists and it can spread even further.
Lockdown was reduced while still paying attention to the economic situation of people, he said and added that if preventive measures were ignored, the virus would spread and the government would be forced to take difficult decisions.
It is important to mention here that plasma therapy for the treatment of coronavirus patients began in the hospital on May 10 after the government allowed clinical trials for the passive immunization process.
