  • The New Jersey Department of Health and the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) have produced a joint Public Service Announcement (PSA) targeting residents who may suffer a potential heart attack or stroke and might be reluctant to go to hospital Emergency Departments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The PSA, which features Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli and NJHA President and CEO Cathy Bennett, was made following reports that residents may be delaying needed health care that they require because of concerns of hospital safety and capacity amid coronavirus. The message reassures residents that hospitals and their healthcare teams are continuing to care for all patients in a safe environment. Please go to the NJ Department of Health website to see full press release and a link for their youtube video.

  • Blood donation centers across the U.S. are ramping up efforts to collect plasma from people who have recovered from COVID-19 in hopes it could be used to save the lives of others infected with the pandemic disease. An international nonprofit agency focused on transfusion medicine and cellular therapies, and dozens of community blood centers nationwide could become a key source for the century-old treatment known as convalescent plasma therapy. The treatment uses blood products taken from people who have recovered from a viral infection and injects them into those still suffering. The experimental practice was used during the devastating 1918 flu, as well as to treat measles in the 1930s.
