Giving Blood Saves Lives

28 April 2022

 by Angus Donald

In November it was announced that blood supplies in Australia had fallen to their lowest levels in 10 years, and the Red Cross has recently said the situation had not improved.

That's why Active Pool Supplies encourages all our staff to roll up their sleeve for the cause, just like Angus did last week.
Blood donations have reduced since COVID19, and Lifeblood Centres are facing challenges with staff succumbing to the various isolation and close contact rules. It is reported that the number of donors cancelling appointments for various reasons is almost 1 in 2.

Even if you've had COVID, you can donate blood when you have completed all required public health follow up and 7 days after you've made a full recovery from COVID-19. The 7 days begins on the first day once you are symptom-free.   If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 but do not develop any symptoms, you may donate blood 7 days after the date of the positive test result.
