Kumar has donated plasma five times and saved the lives of nearly 15 people. According to the doctors, the plasma donated by one person can save at least three lives.

The cop had tested positive for COVID-19 in May. After him, his entire family, including his wife and children, got infected.

He even inspired his wife to donate plasma after she recovered from the infection. Kumar also approached his seniors and colleagues to contact him, in case anyone got infected and required plasma for recovery.

Out of the entire Delhi Police force, around 6,937 (8.52%) of its personnel got infected by the coronavirus. Many of them are still battling the disease.

Delhi Police PRO, Eish Singhal, said that a number of Delhi Police officers and subordinates, after defeating COVID-19, have gone beyond the call of duty and came forward in saving many lives by donated plasma to their colleagues, families, friends and even to the unknown people in Delhi and adjoining regions.
