‘Plasma treatment is a method used in Polish hospitals and I appeal to convalescents to report to regional blood donation and chemotherapy centres’ - said the Health Minister Adam Niedzielski on Wednesday. He explained that this can be done as early as a month after confirmed recovery.
"Each of you can donate blood for therapeutic purposes. Plasma treatment is currently a method used in Polish hospitals and I appeal to convalescents to report to these centres. The conditions that they should meet, i.e. primarily one month after confirmed recovery, and of course, regional centres will make further investigations by carrying out appropriate examinations and tests. But it is very important that we collect this blood from convalescents "- emphasized Niedzielski.
A Polish company Biomed is in the clinical tests phase of a Covid-19 medicine. The basis for the formula is convalescent plasma. The medicine is believed to be the first in the world to effectively treat Covid-19 cases.
