According to India Today, a 49-year-old patient from Delhi was tested Covid-19 positive on April 14. He was admitted to Max Hospital. He developed pneumonia with Type-1 respiratory failure and had to be on ventilator support on April 8. When his health worsened, his family requested the hospital for plasma therapy and they also arranged a donor. The donor had recovered from Covid-19 three weeks back. The patient was administered with fresh plasma and he recovered fully.
According to doctors, a single donor can donate 400ml of plasma which can save two lives, as 200ml is sufficient to treat one patient.
