COVID-19: Is it safe to give blood?
Don't be afraid to give blood.
Please don't be afraid of giving blood. Giving blood is not transmitting the COVID-19 virus. Currently, there is no evidence that blood transfusion can transmit the COVID-19 virus.
Giving blood is safe.
People who give blood are healthy people. The donated blood will undergo a screening test to ensure the blood, which is ready for transfusion, is healthy and safe blood.
There are patients who must be saved.
The procedure carried out by Indonesian Red Cross in processing blood is to produce safe blood for patients who must be saved.
Learn the following before giving your blood.

Patients suffering from cancer, thalassemia, dengue fever, and giving birth mothers still need blood for medical treatment. Come to the nearest PMI to give your blood for those who need it.
