Hundreds of Kovid warriors from various paramilitary forces who have recovered from the corona virus are now queuing up in various parts of India to donate plasma for other serious patients undergoing treatment. There are over 2000 Corona warriors of various paramilitary forces who have recovered and around 1400 are still fighting the virus. Many of them have already donated blood for plasma in Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana and other states. Apart from this, many people have also registered or committed themselves to donate plasma.
CRPF head constable Manjit Singh is one of them. He told NewsBust, "I donated the plasma on June 27 after I came to know from NewsBust. A woman was in need of plasma on a ventilator at Gangaram Hospital. I went to the hospital, got my check done and donated my plasma. ''
