In the wake of the deadly coronavirus, the Ghana National Blood Service has suspended all mass blood donations within the country to prevent the further spread of the disease.

“To prevent coronavirus spread, we have suspended mass blood donations all over Ghana,” a communique released by the organization reads.

Although they have ruled out mass blood donations because of the coronavirus and the lockdown imposed by the government, they encourage the public to book a one-on-one appointment with their workers to donate blood.

“But right now, many sick people will die unless they receive blood transfusion. Please get in touch for a blood donation appointment,” they concluded.
