In its desperate attempt to fight against the pandemic, the Maharashtra state government today launched ‘Project Platina’ which is known to be the world’s largest convalescent plasma therapy trial. The entire funding of this trial is done from the CM Relief Fund and it shall be available free of cost for all coronavirus patients admitted at the government’s listed COVID-19 centres.
