He said that the district administration will provide all kinds of needed support to prepare a new Covid ward for asymptomatic patients. He said that in RIMS plasma therapy has been started for treatment of Coronavirus patients.

The DC said that those patients who have emerged victorious against Coronavirus they should be encouraged to donate plasma and their counselling should be also done so that after 28 days they can themselves turn up for plasma donation.

The DC earlier asked Civil Surgeon Ranchi to prepare a database of all government hospitals and non-governmental hospitals and organise plasma/blood donation cum health check-up camps so that the health status of the cured patients can be assessed and such patients who are interested from them blood or plasma could be collected.
