    Today, Sunday, the Ministry of Health denied reports circulating that health centers would stop using blood plasma in treating people with Corona virus.

    Ministry spokesman Saif Al-Badr said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The work of the therapeutic experiment (convalescent plasma) continues in the National Blood Bank and subsidiary banks in the governorates," indicating that it is "a treatment experience and not an approved treatment, neither in Iraq nor in all countries."

    He explained, "Taking plasma from people who were infected with Corona and then recovered completely, an experiment that has proven successful in many cases due to the presence of immune factors that are used for infected people."
