HYDERABAD, Aug 20, 2020 (BNC Network): Telugu States’ first Plasma Bank will be set up at Hyderabad. Thanks to Rotary Club of Hyderabad Deccan, the bank will be formally inaugurated by Union Home Minister of State G. Kishan Reddy on Sunday.
Being set up on the lines of one in Delhi and Noida, the plasma bank will fulfill the needs of people in Telugu states in these difficult times.
Rotary plasma bank is the initiative of the Rotary Challa Blood Bank to cater to the requirement for Covid Convalescent Plasma being prescribed by many doctors as a line of treatment for patients suffering severe symptoms of Covid SARS II.
Many doctors and hospitals have been prescribing plasma rich in antibodies.
The patients and doctors are under stress as the number of patients far outnumber the number of donors coming forward to donate plasma. Donors’ fear of loss of privacy, re-infection and the long waiting at Hospitals make them reluctant to come forward to donate.
Patients and donors can register on www.plasmaforyou.org. The Donors will be pre-screened for antibodies and other blood parameters from samples collected at home, and requested to come to the blood bank or transport to the blood bank at a designated time thus eliminating the worries of re-infection and the discomfort of waiting at Hospitals.
