Can you donate Plasma for Covid-19?
I have received the following email, “The UK Blood Services are collecting plasma from people who have had a positive test for Covid-19. Following your positive test for Covid-19, you could save lives by donating plasma.” Is it permissible to donate?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
It is permissible to donate plasma based on need. We understand it causes no harm to the donor and it could potentially save lives. It is therefore recommended that plasma is donated and donors will be rewarded for this. However, it must not be sold.
Allah knows best
