Indian Army jawans donate plasma at Tezpur Medical College and Hospital


GUWAHATI: Fourty Indian Army Jawans from the IV Corps (Gajraj Corps) Tezpur donated plasma on Wednesday at the Tezpur Medical College and Hospital (TMCH).

“I came to donate by myself. All should come forward as there is no vaccine for COVID-19 till date. This small donation can be of great help for someone,” said an Indian Army jawan.

Assam health minister Dr, Himanta Biswa Sarma present during the plasma donation ceremony said, “The way today Indian Army and other plasma donors are coming forward, humanity will always be greatful to the donors. I know, all of you are doing great in your frontier, but when it comes to humanity, the way you are coming forward to donate plasma, it’s beyond my expectation and I am very proud of the army that you are ready to help the people of Assam. Today’s event is a proof of that.”

Sarma added, “I thank the team of Tezpur Medical College and Hospital (TMCH), almost all of COVID-19 patients who were admitted here are eager to donate plasma. I also thank all the people who have already donated plasma and are willing to donate plasma at the Tezpur Medical College and Hospital (TMCH)in the future.”

“If anyone of you want to donate plasma again, you will be able to donate again after 15 days,” the minister added.
