Apu looks to donate plasma

Bangladesh left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam Apu said that he is looking forward to donating plasma in the coming days after recovering from COVID-19.

“I tested negative for coronavirus along with my parents and it's a big relief. Now, I want to donate plasma within the next two or three days which should help a lot of people,” Nazmul told reporters on Wednesday. The cricketer had announced on June 20 that he contracted the virus.

He has been providing humanitarian relief to people in need during the coronavirus pandemic and might have contracted the virus while distributing relief materials in Narshingdi. Along with the cricketer, his parents had contracted the virus as well. His parents tested negative as well.

Among cricketers, former national team opener Nafees Iqbal and former captain Mashrafe Mortaza had also tested positive. Mashrafe is yet to undergo a test for the second time but had said that he will do so after a 14-day quarantine while Nafees Iqbal and his family members were expecting the results of their test.
