In a ceremony on Thursday, president of the hospital, Dr. Ali Akbar Velayati, inaugurated a project to use the blood of people who have recovered from Covid-19 as a possible antidote for the disease, Iranian Front Page News reported.

Expressing gratitude to all physicians, nurses and medical staff at the hospital for their devotion to duty in the fight against the novel coronavirus, Velayati said the hospital has begun to use a new method to treat the infectious disease by infusing the blood of recovered patients into those struggling with coronavirus.

He said the new approach to using plasma-based treatment can help the patients while effective therapies and vaccines are being developed.

Masih Daneshvari Hospital, the main medical center in Iran battling with COVID-19, has adopted the convalescent-plasma approach considering the growing number of patients recovering from the disease in Iran, Velayati added.
