People are still donating plasma, but there is no system for this, so now the system will be made. Those who have recovered from Corona, pray that you donate plasma. This is true devotion to God.

Doctor's recommendation required for taking plasma

The Delhi government handed over this report to the central government and based on this the central government allowed plasma therapy in Delhi government and private hospitals. Now plasma therapy is allowed, but the question is, where will the plasma come from? Plasma can only be given by those who suffered corona and are now cured.
