Let's help each other out. Donate blood to help COVID-19 patients survive.
The Philippine Red Cross encourages recovered COVID-19 patients to donate more blood plasma.
Head of the PRC national blood services Dr. Monina Nalupta, they have given convalescent plasma to 614 virus patients.
"Patuloy po tayong nananawagan sa recovered patients ng COVID para magbigay at napakarami pa rin pong tumatawag sa'tin for convalescent treatment," said Nalupta.
A bag of blood plasma from a recovered patient of COVID-19 contains neutralizing antibodies which will help beneficiaries to fight off COVID-19.
Health facilities in the Philippines that use convalescent plasma therapy on COVID-19 patients are the Philippine General Hospital and St. Luke's Medical Center.
The Philippine government expects to start vaccinating the priority sectors against COVID-19 by next month.
The Philippine Red Cross also asked various private companies to donate blood.
"Nagpapasalamat po tayo at continuous ang pagapila para sa pagbibigay ng dugo," she added.
