“If required,we can have 2nd Covid hospital”: CM Pramod

GOA: CM Pramod Sawant on Wednesday said that Plasma therapy  for critically ill covid  patients will start next week.

“We should be able to start plasma therapy next week. The machine for deriving plasma from recovered Covid patients has been ordered and will be delivered in three days,” Sawant told reporters post his meeting with health minister Vishwajit Rane.

Two weeks after they have recovered, willing persons will be called to donate their plasma, Sawant said. So far, 1,156 patients have recovered and eight have died.

“We have all the infrastructure ready to store plasma. I have spoken to patients from Delhi who have recovered after undergoing the plasma therapy to understand their experience,” Rane said.

The health minister also stated that all measures outlined in the latest Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)’s clinical management protocol for Covid-19 protocol, including Remdesivir, Fabiflu and Toxilizumba have been taken.

Replying to a question, Sawant said that BJP Cuncolim MLA Clafacio Dias’ condition is stable and that he is not on ventilator support. “The doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, were consulted. He is stable,” Sawant said.

Dias and his family tested positive last week, and since then are under treatment at the Covid-ESI hospital.

“If required, we can have a second Covid hospital in the state,” he said.
He also stated that his department has moved a file to the government to explore the possibility of outsourcing some services, such as providing food to patients at Covid care centres.
