Chennai: Plasma therapy has been successfully performed on 18 Covid-19 patients at the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital in Chennai, sources said.
The process involves infusing blood from recovered persons to those affected with coronavirus.
“All the patients are doing well. There have been no complications so far,” sources said. The therapy has been possible due to the donation of plasma from patients who had recovered from Covid-19.
Further trials would require plasma donation from the patients who have fully recovered from the virus, sources added.
