Two women who had coronavirus disease and have fully recovered have offered to donate blood plasma to help other patients, the provincial public health chief said on Friday.

The two patients were advised to take a rest for the time being, to recover their strength, Dr Chaiwat Thongmai said.

They were expected to be ready to donate their blood plasma to Phetchaburi Hospital next week,

Their donations would be handed over to the Thai Red Cross Society, he said.

A source said the recovered patients had been discharged from Phetchabun Hospital and were resting at their respective homes in Muang and Sri Thep districts

They were told to quarantine themselves to ensure they remain free of the virus.

Blood transfusion studies by teams in China report striking improvements in ill coronavirus patients treated with infusions of blood plasma from recovered patients.

Thai researchers are seeking blood plasma from former patients and hope for similar results.
