Dr Noryati also urged the people to continue donating blood regularly to ensure the supply of blood is always at a safe level. We should remember that it is very important to have enough supply to treat non Covid-19 patients. For example, emergency victims, expecting mothers who may experience bleeding complications during delivery, cancer and thalassemia patients as well as patients undergoing major surgeries.
However, PDN takes serious safety measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19. They will provide initial health screening such as checking body temperature and inquiring the travel history of the donor. The centres also advise the donors to keep their social distancing by limiting the number of donors at a location at any one time. Hand sanitizers are also provided to all the people who come in or out at PDN Centres.
