The Iraqi source of emulation said, “Those who have had Coronavirus previously and their ‎health has now improved, must now be able to work with health centres to provide their ‎blood plasma to reduce the pain and suffering of those infected with the virus.” ‎

RNA – Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Sa’id al-Hakim, an Iraqi source of emulation, thanked the ‎country’s medical and healthcare staff for explaining religious teachings about providing ‎blood plasma to treat patients with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and other issues.‎

The Iraqi scholar said that as medical and medical staff, including doctors and nurses, are ‎working tirelessly to treat Coronavirus patients, it was important to note the issue of blood ‎plasma and some tips on how to fight Coronavirus both in Iraq and abroad, we note:‎

Tip 1: It is befitting that those who have had Coronavirus previously and their health has ‎now improved, should now work with health centres to provide their blood plasma to reduce ‎the pain and suffering of those infected with the virus. Perhaps they will not only help to heal ‎them, but also save their lives, just as God said in the Holy Quran has said, “…Whoever ‎saves a life is as though he had saved all mankind” [5:32]. Undoubtedly, you, the recovered, ‎have endured the pain and suffering of this disease, so do not neglect this important matter ‎and cooperate with doctors and nurses to provide them with your own blood plasma. ‎

Tip 2: We would like to thank all the medical and healthcare staff, including doctors, nurses ‎and other people who serve in pharmacies and health centres and risk their lives to serve ‎their fellow human beings. May you continue your relentless efforts and cultivate hope in the ‎hearts of patients. We hope that with the cooperation of each other, you will establish ‎special research complexes and medical centres with your fellow scientists and researchers ‎so that you can overcome this struggle with pride.‎

Tip 3: We ask all believers to follow the health instructions and the guidelines of social ‎distancing, to refrain from holding gatherings, shaking hands and kissing each others’ cheeks ‎and to use a mask and gloves to prevent a catastrophe from occurring. ‎

Tip 4: We thank all the believers for their cohesion and cooperation with each other and the ‎social solidarity they have had in these difficult conditions because everyone is witnessing ‎how charities and young people are working to meet the needs of needy families.‎

In conclusion, Ayatollah al-Hakim prayed to God Almighty for the acceptance of everyone’s ‎good deeds and for the sake of Imam al-Mahdi, to remove the tribulation of the ‎Coronavirus, to cover the afflicted with the clothes of good health and welfare and to protect ‎all the believers under the protection of the al-thaqalayn (two weighty things – the Quran and ‎Ahl al-Bayt).‎

As of June 9th, there have been 13,481 cases of Coronavirus, 370 deaths and 5,572 ‎recoveries in Iraq. ‎
