GOA: At least 60 residents of Bicholim who have recovered from Covid-19 have expressed willingness to donate plasma, Bicholim mamlatdar Pravinjay Pandit stated in a report to the North Goa collector. Convalescent plasma from people who had Covid-19 is touted to contain antibodies against the virus that could help hospitalised patients fighting Covid-19 to recover.
“We had undertaken an awareness drive on plasma donation after which 60 people came forward to donate,” Pandit said. The office of the mamlatdar has also distributed pamphlets on plasma donation to patients undergoing treatment at a Covid care centre in Bicholim.
