Coronavirus or Not You Can Still Donate Blood


THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — The coronavirus outbreak is impacting Mississippi Blood Services’ supply. Many blood drives have been canceled so the Mississippi Department of Health and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency are encouraging anyone to make an appointment to give blood. There is a need for all blood types and donations can be made at Mississippi Blood Services in Cleveland from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Delta Regional Medical Center in Greenville from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM through next Monday. According to the Red Cross, there has never been a reported case of a respiratory virus being transmitted by a blood transfusion, and there’s no evidence that the coronavirus is transmissible by blood donations.
