Bengaluru/UNI:  A 38 year-old female patient recovered and shifted out of ICU in the Victoria Hospital here after receiving plasma therapy on Friday.

The patient was admitted with a high viral load.

She was diabetic with poor sugar control.

The patient received convalescent plasma on May 27 and since then there was a steady improvement in her condition. The patient was taken off high flow nasal oxygen on June 2 and was at present on minimal oxygen and shifted to ward on Thursday.

''With her rapid recovery, we hope to discharge the patient soon,'' BMCRI Dean and Director C R Jayanthi said.

''This is a significant improvement and is reassuring. We hope to see her recover completely and will closely monitor the condition,'' she added.

Earlier, a 65-year-old male patient at the Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), Hubballi was recovered after getting plasma therapy.
