KHABAROVSK, November 10. / TASS /. The authorities of the Khabarovsk Territory will support donors, including free visits to museums, said the acting governor of the region, Mikhail Degtyarev, in a video posted on his Instagram page on Tuesday.
“Today I visited the blood service and became a donor myself. The service works rhythmically, but I found that, unfortunately, we are one of the few regions where there are no benefits at the level of the Khabarovsk Territory for donors. I instructed to prepare and accept these benefits. at a minimum, donors could go to museums for free literally after the opening of all cultural institutions, Degtyarev said.
As reported in the release of the regional government, amid the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the number of donations has decreased: some are sick and receive a medical treatment after recovery, others are afraid to visit institutions with a large number of people. At the same time, blood components are required constantly - an average of 100 residents of the region need transfusions daily.
Currently, the institution is taking special control measures: donor plasma and platelets, into which the blood is divided after collection, are inactivated. This makes it possible to completely protect recipients - those people to whom doctors transfuse blood components in hospitals.
In total, donors in the Khabarovsk Territory donate whole blood, blood plasma and platelets 30,000 times annually. The backbone of the so-called "personnel" donors numbers about 10 thousand people. More than 3.5 thousand residents of the region bear the title of "Honorary Donor of the Russian Federation".
