Coronavirus does not pose any known risk to blood donors during the donation process or from attending blood drives. It's safe to donate blood, said Admiral Brett P. Giroir, M.D., Assistant Secretary of Health, Part of preparedness includes a robust blood supply. Healthy individuals should schedule an appointment to donate today to ensure that blood is available for patients who need it. The FDA has reiterated that there have been no reported or suspected cases of transfusion-transmitted coronavirus and the virus poses no known risk to patients receiving blood transfusions. While blood drives may bring together groups of people, blood collection activities are not "mass gatherings", rather they are controlled blood drives conducted using appropriate infection control mechanisms intended to assure the safety of the products, donors and staff.
