“White cells are best hunters” Global scientist are taking step towards finding vaccine to completely destroy the Novel coronavirus (COVID 19). In this situation plasma treatment is helping globally to keep the mortality rate low.
Before we see what is Plasma treatment let us remember the true statement which says that The life of the flesh is in the Blood.
Our blood contains both solid and liquid particles. All the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are in solid state. The liquid state particles in our blood is called plasma.
More than half portion (55%) of our blood is Plasma.
The liquid state plasma is a pack of proteins plus glucose which helps our body to carry all the blood cells from top to bottom.

Normally our immune system will work against the virus and bacteria which infecting us. white blood cells are taking major role in this battle. When we affected by normal virus and bacteria’s (previously affected), the normal antibodies in our own body will defend us from them. These micro soldiers are placed in plasma.
For this antibodies it is easy to identify those normal virus and already practiced to defeat them.
The problem is the corona virus is a new for whole humanity. So when a human affected by new virus, in his body it may take time to form antibodies naturally, scientists says.
The person who already get cured from these new virus because of their strong immunity power, they would have antibodies which have the capacity to identify that new virus and defeat them.
So, plasma treatment is a process of artificially increasing the immune power by injecting the cured persons plasma (which extracted from his blood) into the infected person.
This method of treatment is called plasma treatment. The methodology used to extract the plasma from blood is called centrifugation.
Today this plasma treatment is available in many countries including India.
