New Delhi: The Special Cell of Delhi Police has questioned Delhi University professor Apoorvanand for five hours in connection with the riots that rocked northeast Delhi in February this year.

“On Monday, August 3, I was asked by the Special Cell, Delhi Police, to appear before it in the investigation into FIR no 59/20 related to the violence that happened in North-East Delhi in February 2020. I spent five hours there”.

Delhi Police also considered it necessary to seize my phone for the purpose of investigation.

The professor, in the statement shared online, said it is disturbing for him to see that supporters of the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests are being considered the source of violence.

The professor, who teaches Hindi at Delhi University, stated: “While cooperating and respecting the right of police authorities to conduct a full, fair and thorough investigation, one can only hope that the probe would focus on the real instigators and perpetrators of the violence against a peaceful citizen’s protest and the people of northeast Delhi.

“It should not lead to further harassment and victimization of the protesters and their supporters, who asserted their democratic rights through constitutional means, while stating their dissent to the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 (CAA) and the decision of the Central government to operationalise the National Population Register and the National Register of Citizens, all over the country. I would urge the police and expect their probe to be thorough, just and fair so that truth prevails”

11 COVID patients recover from plasma therapy in hydeabad

Hyderabad: In a major development, 11 out of 13 patients who were administered convalescent plasma therapy for COVID-19 have recovered fully.

The recovery rate from Plasma therapy is nearly 84 per cent, though it is a bit early to conclude that.

Indian Express quoted Dr Aedula Vinay Sekhar, Professor and HOD Medicine, Gandhi Medical College and Hospital as saying, “We have seen that this treatment protocol will do well for people who are in the category of illness — ‘moderately severe’. They are generally stage-3 Acute  Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients, who have an increase in oxygen demand without many co-morbidities.”

ICMR has engaged Gandhi Hospital along with a few select hospitals for plasma therapy trials. The treatment is promising as there was significant and encouraging improvement in the number of patients recovering from the therapy.

Noting that the patients showed good results even after recovery, the doctor said they were quick to shed off the virus after a plasma rich in antibody was transfused to them.

Plasma therapy is used when the patient does not respond to any other treatment. It is used for moderately severe patients before they reach a ventilator stage, informed Dr Vinay.

Earlier, Plasma Donors’ Association was formed for the success of plasma therapy for coronavirus patients. Those who have recovered from the novel coronavirus disease will be included in the Association and help would be provided in the treatment of other patients.

In plasma therapy the antibodies are separated from a person cured of the novel coronavirus and are infused into the vein of the COVID-19 patient who is in a critical condition.

Meanwhile, informal market is also booming in Hyderabad. Patients who have recovered from coronavirus are getting exorbitant offers for donation of their plasma ranging from Rs 60,000 to Rs 3 lakh for a single donation.
