COVID-19 has been here for a while now and even though several pharmacies around the world have been working non-stop for a vaccine that could save the lives of millions, there is no cure for COVID-19, as of now. However, some doctors in India have been trying plasma therapy to treat moderate to severe patients, and they’ve been quite successful at that. The only problem is, sometimes it is difficult to look for donors in case of emergencies, but these websites and FB pages are making it easier to connect donors to patients, and here’s all you need to know about them.

1. Dhoondh

Dhoondh was founded by Adwitiya Mal and his US-based friend, Mukul Pahwa after it took Adwaitiya four days to find a suitable donor for his father-in-law who was in a critical condition and in need of plasma. This website connects patients to donors after both the parties are asked to fill a form regarding their underlying medical conditions, blood type, when they were infected and more similar questions. Currently, they have over 100 patients and 60+ donors registered with them.
