The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) on Monday announced that convalescent plasma therapy for treating Covid-19 patients has been dropped from the Clinical Management Guidelines.

The decision follows a meeting of the ICMR-National Task Force for Covid-19 on Friday, when all members voted in favour of doing away with convalescent plasma therapy for Covid-19 treatment citing its ineffectiveness and inappropriate use in several cases.
