The entire world is suffering from coronavirus pandemic. Every day the cases of novel coronavirus are increasing. Many countries are trying to make a vaccine for COVID-19. But until now, there is no vaccine for coronavirus. Recently, plasma therapy has shown good results in the COVID-19 treatment in India. ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) has already authorized the conduction of a clinical trial of this treatment last week and things have started showing results. Sumiti Singh is India’s coronavirus survivor.

The Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan has recently started his new series Koki Poochega in which he talks with COVID-19 survivors. In the first episode, Sumiti Singh was the guest. She shared her experience about how she fought with coronavirus and came out victorious. Sumiti Singh, a COVID-19 survivor has donated her blood plasma that will help other patients to recover from COVID-19.
Sumiti Singh has donated her blood plasma at Red Cross Ahmedabad. She has shared the story of it at her social media. Sumiti Singh wrote,

I donated my blood plasma today—

A person who has recovered from COVID is able to make antibodies against it. Also if you don’t have any pre-existing ailments you are considered a healthy body and CAN donate your blood plasma, if willing, for the benefit of patients in a critical condition.
With great joy and pride, I am able to share that I fit all the necessary criteria to donate plasma and did so today at the Red Cross Ahmedabad.

Sumiti Singh has also explained the procedure of blood plasma and how it works. She added,

The procedure:- The procedure to donate plasma is the same as when you donate blood. There is one needle that is used to draw blood from your body, and the blood runs through tubes that carry it into a machine. That machine separates the plasma from the blood. The same needle sends back blood to your body while the (yellowish coloured) plasma is collected in a bag. It’s all toO cool. This happens through multiple cycles. I was also informed that the body will replenish the plasma in 24 – 48 hours.

Sumiti Singh has shared her experience with her blood plasma donation.

Dear Positives/Now Negatives…
This was my first blood plasma donation experience. My feelings were oscillating between nervousness and excitement. On one part, I was unsure about the procedure and how I’d feel thereafter. On the other hand, there was a desire to contribute in any way I could in the war against COVID. If it helped anyone, anywhere, I was doing it.
Expect 2 needle pricks. The first one to check if you have antibodies. The second one to draw blood out and transfer it back in. The procedure lasted 30-40 minutes. Most of this time I was fine, however for 3- 4 minutes I felt nauseous and light-headed. My doctors at the Red Cross immediately helped me with what I was feeling and put me at ease. I have been completely fine, thereafter.
SVP hospital is the first in India to get approvals for trials for Plasma Therapy and I wish them all the luck in the world & thank them for taking me through this. If I can do it…. maybe you can too
