GOA: Twelve people who defeated Covid 19 will be donating their plasma at the Goa Medical College (GMC). Three of them have been scheduled for the plasma donation on Monday. The North Goa Collectorate office had held a screening camp for plasma donors at Miramar on Friday wherein these 12 out of 13 recovered patients were found eligible for the donation.
“There is a lot of false information about plasma donation, which is why we held the screening camp to highlight the eligiblity process. With the help of their plasma, they can help those who have Covid-19,” deputy collector, Guru Desai said.
The entire process takes 45 minutes so we will carry out the process by having the donation of three donors a day, he added. Desai said that the recovered patients can donate their plasma every 15 days. The North Goa Collectorate office has resolved to have tests every Friday so that people willing to donate their plasma can come forward to help those battling the coronavirus. The results will be declared on Mondays.
