Can COVID Patients Donate Blood After Recovery?

 - Sakshi Post

World Blood Donor Day 2021: June 14 is World Blood Donor Day. People in huge numbers come forward to donate blood and save those who are in danger. The Corona issue, on the other hand, has caused a scarcity of blood units in blood banks around the country.

Furthermore, the fact that millions of people have been infected with the virus has raised concerns about blood donation. COVID-19 patients who have recovered can give blood, according to specialists. However, there are a few factors people should consider before donating blood.

Anyone who wishes to donate blood must first get tested. The test will be positive if the donor exhibits COVID-19 symptoms. The resolution of these symptoms, on the other hand, takes at least 28 days. Those who test negative later can donate blood, according to the Joint United Kingdom (UK) Professional Advisory Committee on Blood Transfusion and Tissue Transplantation Services.

COVID-19 patients, on the other hand, are only needed to donate blood after a 28-day wait or full recovery, according to rules in India.

Many people infected with this disease require a large amount of blood in order to recover. People in other nations came forward to donate blood even during this terrible period. Several patients were able to meet the plasma requirements, thanks to the efforts of blood donors. 

'Give blood and keep the world beating' is the year's theme for 2021. The mission is to save lives by encouraging individuals all around the world to donate blood.

On June 14, the birthday of Carl Landsteiner, World Blood Donor Day is observed. His birth date has been designated as World Blood Donor Day by the World Health Organization.
