Are Covid 19 Patients Recovering from Plasma Therapy in India?

Coronavirus Pendamic is rapidly targeting populations around the world. More than 3 lakh people have been infected with corona worldwide. Now more than 2 lakh deaths have also taken place. The situation in many states including Maharashtra is also bad. In such a situation, the discussion of plasma therapy (also called antibodies therapy) is getting more. Many experts believe that it is curing corona infected patients. But how true is these claims? In this article we will tell you in detail.

Plasma therapy was first used in 1918

Spanish was first treated as a flu in 1918 after the First World War. Subsequently, this therapy was started to be used for the infected. At present, corona infected are also being claimed to be cured with Plasma Therapy. It is being said that, when a person is cured of corona virus, the immunity of that person becomes stronger for a short time. This emits protein from immunity cells, which are found in plasma, which help blood clot when necessary.

Many experts are claiming that multiple patients can be treated simultaneously with plasma therapy. It is believed that this therapy will promptly treat those who are most at risk.

Health Ministry claims about plasma therapy

According to Lav Aggarwal, joint secretary of the Union Ministry of Health, there is no worldwide therapy in the country even today to deal with Novel Corona virus (COVID-19). It is currently in experimental phase, there is no evidence that it can be used as a treatment. It is currently being treated as experimental therapy. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has launched a National Study to find out about the accuracy of this therapy. Therefore, use this therapy as a trial until it is certified by ICMR and any other institution.

Plasma therapy can be fatal

According to Luv Agarwal, this is a plasma therapy, if we do not use it on the basis of the prescribed guidelines then it can lead to a fatal condition. So until the effectiveness of this therapy is proven, it is unfair to claim it in any way. This type of use is illegal anywhere in the ICMR guidelines. And on the other hand, it can also threaten the patient’s life.
