A blood drive was organized this Wednesday April 7 at the Agora space in Saint-Avold. Around 220 people were expected throughout the day. In these times of Covid-19, a strict protocol had been put in place. “For example, we ask each donor if their mask has been worn for more than four hours. If so, we give him another one, ”explained the D.r Diana Berriot, sampling doctor.
But this Wednesday, around 11 a.m., only about forty donors had turned up. Well below the usual pace. “It’s been fifteen years since I donated blood and this is the first time that I have seen so few people, said Agostino Citro, 38, from Farschviller. Before, things were happening. “” There aren’t many people. For me, it’s a civic duty, ”said Roland Becker, a 69-year-old Naborian.
