Kejriwal visits 'Plasma Bank' started at ILBS for treatment of nCoV patients

New Delhi, Jul 2 (UNI) Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday reviewed India’s first ‘Plasma Bank’ which was inaugurated at the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) here.

The plasma bank has begun operations at Delhi government’s ILBS Hospital and will provide plasma to Delhi's Covid hospitals.

Mr Kejriwal along with Deputy CM Manish Sisodia visited ILBS Hospital to review India's first plasma bank.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Mr Kejriwal said,“Just reviewed Delhi govt's new Plasma Bank. It is world class and modern. Donors are being taken care of very well by staff. I urge recovered Corona patients to come forward and donate their plasma.”

Earlier while inaugurating the ‘Plasma Bank’ via video conference, the CM had said,”If you have recovered from Covid-19 and your age is between 18 and 60 and your weight is above 50 kg, then you may donate plasma for Covid-19 patients. However, women who have given birth or the persons with comorbidities, are not eligible to donate plasma.”

“You cannot donate plasma if your weight is less than 50 kg, you have ever been pregnant, you are diabetic on insulin, your Blood Pressure is more than 140 and diastolic less than 60 or more than 90,” he said.

“You cannot donate plasma if you have uncontrolled diabetes or hypertension with change in medication in last 28 days, you are a Cancer Survivor or you have chronic kidney/heart/lung or liver disease,” he said.

“If you are eligible and willing to donate plasma, then you may call us at 1031 or you can whatsapp us at 8800007722. Our doctors will then get in touch with you to further confirm your eligibility,” he said.

“The Delhi Government will arrange for transport to the ILBS Hospital, or reimburse travel cost. If you've not yet been tested negative after being tested positive for Covid initially, we will arrange for you to be tested. We will provide refreshments during your visit to the Plasma Bank,” the CM added.
