East Delhi based Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital is Covid-19 dedicated hospital.

New Delhi: Delhi Govt-run Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital (RGSSH) has got approval from Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)to conduct plasma therapy on 200 covid-19 infected patients, said an official on Tuesday.

East Delhi based Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital is Covid-19 dedicated hospital.

Senior doctor at RGSSH informed, ‘We received the ICMR nod about 10 days ago, and currently we have the permit to do plasma therapy on 200 recipients. We are making all arrangements before we can begin, but we are short of manpower as of now’.

Recently, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated India’s first plasma bank at the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences.

The hospital authorities informed that advertisements have been put out to hire trained technicians. As the convalescent plasma therapy facility needs a lot of paraphernalia and trained staff, the hospital is trying to augment our infrastructure as well as in the process of hiring the required staff.

A total of 10 people recovered from Covid-19 donated their plasma on the first day of plasma bank inauguration. While on the second day seven donors come forward to give plasma.
