Srikakulam (Andhra Pradesh) [India], Aug 8 (ANI): Steps are being taken to launch plasma therapy in the district to treat coronavirus patients, Srikakulam district collector J Nivas said on Saturday.
"Steps are being taken to launch plasma therapy in the district. Plasma can be collected from cured patients after 28 days of recovery from COVID-19 and used in treatment," Nivas told reporters here.
