Dubai introduces a new treatment for critical COVID-19 cases using blood plasma and considers it an important step towards treatment and prevention of the spread of COVID-19

Dubai: Dubai Health authorities are working on a new method to treat serious cases of COVID-19. In this new method, they will be using blood plasma, drawn from recovered COVID-19 patients. It will be used only for critical cases at the moment.

This method has been proven by the US Food and Drug Administration Department to aid speedy recoveries. The treatment is also known as convalescent plasma therapy. There are a number of specialized doctors in place to implement convalescent plasma therapy in Dubai based on international standards along with rules and guidelines for who is eligible for this treatment.

Dr. Younis Kazim, CEO of Dubai Healthcare Corporation at the DHA is the man behind the move.

The initiative was taken following international test results which found that once a person recovers from the virus, they develop antibodies that will stay in their blood to fight the same virus, according to the DHA. Doctors believe that someone who has recovered has developed strong anti-bodies to fight the virus, and if the plasma is injected in a person fighting the disease, this will help the body fight the attack.
