Abstract

COVID-19 is a global pandemic that we are facing from the
end of the year 2019. Scientists are trying to develop a
vaccine to get rid of coronavirus as soon as possible. In the
meantime, doctors are trying to treat patients in different
ways. They are trying their best by applying many methods,
therapies to patients so that the patients can recover fast
from coronavirus. Some doctors are recommending plasma
therapy. In this process, doctors are giving plasma therapy
to patients who are in a critical situation. Nevertheless, not
everybody can donate plasma. Only those who have
recovered from COVID-19 can donate plasma after getting
a doctor’s advice because they have a corona antibody in
their blood, which will help a COVID-19 patient to improve
health conditions. However, we have seen that when a
COVID-19 patient needs plasma therapy, his/her relatives
try hard to find a donor. They post on social media, call
their known relatives, friends that are time-consuming and
take much effort. To make it simple, we have made an
application that will store the information about the people
who have recovered from COVID-19 and are ready to
donate plasma. The donor can also share his COVID-19
positive journey and the lifestyle he/she has followed to
recover which will motivate others to recover early. A
COVID-19 patient can find a plasma donor near his/her
current location utilizing the proposed automation system. It
will save time and effort.
