For a specific period after returning from China, I was forbidden from giving blood. What are you trying to say? My blood is dirty? There were a list of places in China (and other countries) that could not donate blood, and it was all but two provinces!
As soon as my time was up, I made an appointment to donate, maybe about two months ago. You kinda get an idea that blood banks just store all this blood just in case and, well just in case never comes. I received an email stating that my blood was sent to a local hospital for a transfusion!!!
I knew it would help!
