In October, about 1.5 thousand Muscovites became plasma donors - twice as many as in September. This is a record number over the past six months, said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.

“By the decision of the Clinical Committee, plasma with antibodies to COVID-19 has been used to treat sick patients since April of this year. Previously, about 650 people a month became donors. In total, almost 5 thousand people have already become donors of antikovid plasma in Moscow, and about 12 percent have donated plasma several times. I would like to thank everyone who shared this valuable ingredient. You are helping doctors save lives, ”the vice-mayor emphasized.

Among the donors are 39 social workers who donated plasma with antibodies to coronavirus as part of the Hope Donors initiative.

Plasma treatment is used in hospitals for patients with moderate to severe disease. The method is one of the components of complex therapy and is prescribed by the attending physician.

Thanks to plasma transfusion, the likelihood of worsening the condition and transferring the patient to mechanical ventilation is almost halved, and the survival rate is increased by 19 percent.

To become a donor, you need to contact the hotline by phone +7 (495) 870-45-16 daily from 9:00 to 19:00. People from 18 to 55 years old who have recovered from COVID-19, weighing more than 50 kilograms, are invited to donate. After the first symptoms of coronavirus infection appear, five weeks should pass. Contraindications are the presence of chronic diseases, HIV, syphilis, viral hepatitis. For the delivery of plasma with COVID-19 antibodies, the Mayor of Moscow has established a reward of 5 thousand rubles. Donors also receive compensation for food in the amount of 1212 rubles.
