The director of the Bucharest Blood Transfusion Center stressed that donors must be in good health.

If they’re on medicine, they’re definitely not healthy.

If they have chronic diseases, they can no longer be donors, because a disease is incompatible with being a donor.

We have complaints from donors that they come, wait in line and, in the end, are rejected.

But the selection is very important for us and that’s why they are rejected.

They have various ailments and it is normal for the doctor to reject them.

The eligibility criteria for blood donors are stipulated by law,” said Doina Gosha.

Those who donate blood must be between 18 and 60 years old, weigh more than 50 kg, regular pulse, 60-100 beats/minute, systolic blood pressure between 100 and 180 mmHg, not have undergone in the last six months a surgery, women should not be pregnant, during the lousy period, during the menstrual period.
