Govt: no evidence that plasma therapy can be used for treatment

Apr 29, 2020 09:45 IST

The Health Ministry in its daily press briefing on Tuesday said, until ICMR concludes its study and a robust scientific proof is available, plasma therapy should be used only for research or trial purposes. "If plasma therapy is not used in a proper manner under proper guideline then it can also cause life-threatening complications", said Lav Aggarwal. Several states across the country are considering the use of plasma therapy to treat critically-ill Covid-19 patients even as the treatment showed positive results in a few patients in Delhi. On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said six critical Covid-19 patients recovered after plasma therapy in Delhi and the results were very encouraging.
