Kanika Kapoor who caught herself into controversy post her being tested positive for COVID-19 and hiding her travel history is now being lauded for her actions. Post her recovery from COVID-19, Kanika has decided to donate her plasma for patients suffering from the virus. The doctors of King George Medical (KGMU), will check the 42-year old singer’s blood to check if her plasma is suitable for donation.
A team of doctors is all set to visit the singer’s home to collect a sample for testing. And if the results get cleared, then Kanika Kapoor will be donating her plasma at the end of this month. The Baby Doll singer was discharged from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute Of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) on April 6.
There a lot of researchers that claim the plasma of COVID-19 survivors contain antibodies. Apart from Kanika Kapoor, actor Zoa Morani along with her sister Shaza Morani and father Karim Morani has also stepped forward to donate their plasma as even they are coronavirus survivors.
We hope that Kanika Kapoor’s noble gesture inspires other COVID-19 survivors to donate their plasma for other patients fighting the virus. However, the process is not as easy as it sounds because the doctors will have to ensure if the plasma is suitable for donation or not.
A couple of days back the Bollywood singer took to her Instagram to share a heartwarming note in which she explained her visit to Lucknow and also opened up about why she was quiet all this time. The singer also expressed her gratitude to her supporters and doctors who helped her recover.
On the side note, the singer has been charged by the police under IPC Section 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) and IPC Section 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life).
