Plasma Bank has been started at Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Friday, announced state health and family welfare minister through his twitter handle.
The minister in his tweet wrote, “Glad to share that we’ve started a #PlasmaBank at GMCH. The first convalescent donor is a doctor himself, a #COVID19 patient. My gratitude to Dr Lithikesh for donating his plasma, and to the team who is working on this bank.”
I encourage cured patients to come forward & donate, he said in the tweet.
The donor, Dr. Lithikesh was the first doctor who tested positive for COVID-19 from GMCH.
