MALAGA’S transfusion centre has made a plea for blood donations.

In an emergency situation which has swept across Spain, blood banks in hospitals are alarmingly low.

Blood is needed in hospitals to combat coronavirus and Malaga’s transfusion centre asks for the collaboration of the citizens of Malaga to donate blood.

The centre said a continuous donation of all blood groups is necessary over the next 15 days, in order to replenish the blood banks and guarantee the supply to the Malaga hospitals.

The Malaga transfusion centre has sent out a circular asking for citizens to collaborate in this task.

“We want to send to all donors in the province the clearest and most accurate information possible, so that together we can stop the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to work at the service of everyone.

“Once the state of alarm over the health crisis in our country has been declared, the solidarity of our donors is needed. We will continue to need blood in order to to supply all our hospitals.

“We will follow all the recommendations of the health authorities to help curb the COVID-19 pandemic, for which we need your collaboration in order to have sufficient blood supplies.”
