«Doctors note obvious improvements in patients after donor plasma transfusion. They see that, in fact, there have been no health complications, no side effects, and the disease takes a noticeably milder course,» Rakova said in an interview with the Vesti TV channel.

She went on to say that this kind of treatment is used only for patients in critical condition, TASS informs.

«We will face shortage of plasma, so we hope that the number of those who had recovered, and, therefore, the number of donors, would grow day by day,» she added.

According to earlier reports, Muscovites who have recovered from the illness, are invited to become plasma donors. This type of transfusion is believed to be one of the most efficient measures to combat the disease in the absence of a vaccine, and is being widely used in the United States, Germany, China and other states.

The deputy mayor said the number of patients taken to Moscow’s hospitals with pneumonia had increased by 70% over the past week.

«The number of patients hospitalized with pneumonia has increased by 70% over the week. So, we cannot say that we have any positive dynamics. So far, we see a quite dynamic growth, which cannot but cause certain alarm,» she said in an interview with the Vesti news program on the Rossiya-1 television channel.

According to the latest update, as many as 45,351 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Moscow, with 3,524 patients having recovered and 435 fatalities. The growth rate has been on decline for the past few consecutive days, amounting to 6.76% on Monday. A total of 3,524 people have already recovered from the illness.
