Srinagar: Asserting that Novel Coronavirus can be defeated, if people work together and follow the guidelines, Director of SK Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) A G Ahangar on Thursday appealed to the recovered COVID-19 patients to come forward to donate their plasma and serve the humanity at large.
The appeal comes a day after the installation of sophisticated machinery for Plasmapheresis for COVID-19 patients at SKIMS.
”This virus is new and it has been behaving in a novel way. You never know today, you can have 100 COVID-19 positive patients at hospital, tomorrow, the number can increase and vice-versa, so we have to remain ready and well equipped,” he said.
According to the SKIM Director, the recovered Covid-19 patients are warriors, who are helping the administration in fighting and defeating the new virus.
”All the COVID-19 positive patients can be the saviours of humanity amid this crisis,” added Dr Ahangar, the Ex-Officio Secretary to the government.
”My message to the people is – stick to the WHO guidelines, health advisories and work together to fight the pandemic. People should know that COVID-19 is real. Stay home and stay safe,” he said.
