Chandigarh, June 12

In a significant development to fight Covid-19, Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital, Faridkot, has conducted the state's maiden convalescent plasma therapy as part of novel treatment modality.

Punjab Medical Education and Research Minister OP Soni said the therapy was given to a critically ill Covid-19 patient by a team of doctors at the hospital in Faridkot district.

"This hospital has become one of the pioneer institutes in the country to initiate this therapy as a part of the National Clinical Trial under the ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research)," said the minister. The minister said more people, who had recovered from Covid-19, should come forward for this noble cause.

The working team — Dr Ravinder Garg, Dr Neetu Kukar, Dr Neerja Jindal and Dr Divya Kavita — expressed their gratitude to the state government for their support. — TNS
