A doctor belonging to Rohtak, who is a practicing nephrologist in the USA, has set an example by overcoming the COVID-19 disease and treating patients with her own blood plasma.

Dr Pooja Bhatia Malhotra is a daughter of Rohtak-based senior advocate Amarnath Bhatia.

As per her family sources, Dr Pooja runs a hospital in New Jersey where dialysis is conducted. In the last week of March, she contracted Covid herself from one of her kidney disease patients who had not tested positive for Covid by then.

The doctor recovered from the disease and went back to her hospital, where she has been treating patients with her own blood plasma.

“After having tested positive for Covid, my sister stayed at her home in strict isolation and took the requisite treatment. After about 17-18 days, she recovered from the disease and started attending her patients again. She has donated her own blood plasma for the treatment of Covid patients,” said Dr Pooja’s brother, Vishal Bhatia.

Dr Pooja’s father, advocate Amarnath Bhatia, stated that he was proud of his daughter who was serving as a frontline warrior against the Covid pandemic which has gripped many countries.
