We are pleased that governments around the world have been proactive in attempts to minimize the impact of COVID-19. Hopefully, new social distancing measures and travel restrictions for high-risk regions will prevent the rapid dissemination of the virus. Many countries have called on residents to shelter in place, work remotely, and limit contact with the sick, immunocompromised, and elderly. As conscious global citizens, we should all be doing our part to be mindful of those around us and abide by medical recommendations.
During the 21-day national lockdown, SABMR staff will be working remotely and continue to provide patient and donor services. Recruitment of new donors will also continue, at no charge, through our online platform.
