News Desk: On Friday, Assam government opened a plasma bank at the Guwahati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) for treating coronavirus patients. The first donor was Dr Likhitesh, a post-graduate student of GMCH, who had tested positive for the COVID-19, and was later cured.
Health Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted, “Glad to share that we’ve started a Plasma Bank at GMCH. The first convalescent donor is a doctor himself, a COVID-19 patient. My gratitude to Dr Lithikesh for donating his plasma, and to the team who is working on this bank. I encourage cured patients to come forward and donate”.
Minister of State for Health Pijush Hazarika said, “We should be inspired by Dr Likhitesh. Even when he was in the Covid ward, he was guiding other patients himself. Yesterday he volunteered to donate plasma.”
