July 18, 2020: Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi, who has recovered from COVID-19, donated blood plasma on Thursday in Delhi government's plasma bank in Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS).



Taking to Twitter she informed that she was eligible to donate her plasma to help critically ill COVID-19 patients in Delhi.



"Happy to share that I'm now eligible for donating plasma, as per medical protocols. I will be donating plasma at Delhi Govt's plasma bank in ILBS today," Atishi tweeted.





The AAP leader's tweet earned praise from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.



"V good Atishi!" Mr Kejriwal replied in response to her tweet.





Atishi tested positive for the novel coronavirus last month. The 39-year-old, who represents the Kalkaji constituency in south Delhi, is the third MLA from her party to have tested positive for the coronavirus; the other two are Vishesh Ravi (Karol Bagh) and Rajkumar Anand (Patel Nagar).



The national capital, the worst-hit metro city and the third worst-hit region in the country, opened India's first plasma bank this month.
