Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to all people, regardless of religion, who have recovered from the coronavirus disease to come forward and donate plasma for serious COVID-19 patients.
Pointing out that blood plasma doesn’t differentiate between religion, Arvind Kejriwal said plasma of a Hindu person can save a Muslim patient and vice versa.
“Come forward and donate plasma. We all want to recover and survive the coronavirus crisis. If tomorrow, a patient is Hindu and is serious, who knows maybe the plasma of a Muslim person can save him or if a Muslim patient is serious, maybe the plasma of a Hindu person can save him,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
Arvind Kejriwal also said that anyone can be infected with the deadly new virus regardless of religion.
“Anyone can be infected with coronavirus. Be it Hindu or Muslim, anyone can get coronavirus,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
Arvind Kejriwal said the initial results of plasma therapy on COVID-19 patients in Delhi were encouraging.
“There is a patient in LNJP hospital, he was in critical condition and doctors said he is sinking. He was administered plasma therapy and his health has improved significantly. This has encouraged us, as far as plasma therapy is concerned,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal also said the number of novel coronavirus cases in Delhi is improving every week.
“The last week was slightly better than the week before, for the people of Delhi. There were lesser number of cases, fewer deaths and many people went home after making a complete recovery,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
