AS coronavirus cases continue to rise in Delhi in India, the country is hoping to treat patients with plasma therapy.
BBC reported that the city’s first plasma bank was unveiled on Thursday to give the sick easier access to plasma.
Plasma, the largest part of the blood, is a light yellow liquid that takes nutrients, hormones and proteins to portions of the body that need it.
With the therapy, antibody-rich blood will be transfused into Covid-19 patients.
According to the BBC, plasma therapy is on a trial stage in Delhi but it is hoped that the antibodies from one patient will help get rid of the virus in others.
More than 90,000 cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in Delhi while India has over 625,000 cases, the 4th highest in the world, including 18,213 deaths.
