With no effective remedy or vaccination available yet to fight the coronavirus epidemic, the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) has written to President Donald Trump, state governors and lawmakers to launch a plasma drive, it was reported.

As convalescent plasma appears to be a possible treatment for COVID-19 patients, AAPI itself has launched a plasma drive from patients who have been cured of the disease, the American Bazaar reported in April citing an official statement as saying.

“There is an enormous amount of anxiety and numerous questions among general public about the pandemic and the havoc it’s creating,” said Suresh Reddy, President of AAPI, the largest ethnic medical organization in the US.
