Plasma therapy defined as ineffective for Covid treatment by the ICMR

In a recent update on the Covid treatment in India, the ICMR released a notice to drop the plasma therapy as a means to treat Covid. This comes as a big relief for families of patients actively looking for Plasma for a cure. New SOPs also suggest that only remdesivir and other drugs will be useful for the cure hereafter. ICMR released this notice, three days after the Lancet report on the findings of trials on plasma therapy. They proved it to be ineffective, and hence, it will be not continued from now onwards. Doctors say that it will not reduce the progression to severe disease. Watch the video to know more!
