By David WrightCNN – March 12, 202012:00amMaryland Governor Larry Hogan said Thursday that a $50 in blood plasma donated by a Maryland resident is helping save the life of a patient.
“Blood donation is a way to save lives, and I want to personally thank Joe Biden, Rich Donat and Larry O’Donnell for their generous support,” Hogan said in a statement.
“This donation was made possible by the generous contributions of my office, the Maryland Department of Health, the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), the National Association of Blood Banks (NABLB) and the Maryland Association of Vital Statistics Administrators (MAVSA).”
These four men and women are a reflection of the values of our great state, and they are heroes who will live on in the lives of their loved ones,” he added.
Biden, a former U.S. House candidate, and Donat, a Maryland state legislator, have made a pledge to donate 100% of their blood plasma to a patient’s cause.
The donation, made at the Maryland state house in Baltimore, was made at an event hosted by the Maryland Medical Society.
The NIDCD said it is donating 10,000 plasma donations to the Maryland chapter of the NABB.NABLBs is an association of local blood banks that provides financial support to blood-related research, education and clinical services.
The association is also a partner of the Blood and Transplant Institute of America.
The organization is not affiliated with the National Institutes of Health and has no affiliation with the U.K. National Blood Services or the U.,S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Maryland Health Department spokesman David M. Smith said that the NIDBD had received the donation and will notify the Maryland Blood Services and the blood plasma organization.
He added that the Maryland health department will use the donations to help fund other medical research and medical care.”
We will be very grateful to Joe Bidens donation, and thank Larry Donat for the opportunity to help in the fight against blood loss and transplantation,” Smith said in the statement.
Donat said in an interview with CNNMoney that donating blood to a loved one is the only way to protect the lives and welfare of others.”
If it is for a family member, it’s a good thing.
It’s a really, really good thing for the family,” he said.”
For a person to get sick and need to die and it doesn’t get to be that way.
That’s just not a good situation.
“Donat added that he has donated blood to more than 100 people and has not experienced any complications.
He has also donated plasma to two people who are deceased.
The donations come as the state of Maryland struggles to maintain its current rate of new cases of HAV-19, a highly contagious virus.
The rate has spiked, from an average of 5,000 new cases a day in 2016 to 7,500 a day this year.
The state has also seen a sharp rise in cases of a new coronavirus that is spreading faster and more quickly than ever before.
In January, a state study revealed that Maryland was at the beginning of the epidemic when HAV19 cases surpassed all other states in terms of volume and frequency.
The outbreak is now threatening to kill more than 20,000 people.
