Online eligibility test

Online eligibility test

No
[3 / 11] Have you been in the UK for 3 or more months during 1980 to 1996; or a total of 5 or more years in France or Ireland from 1980 to 2001?

Any persons who have spent cumulatively a total of 3 or more months in the UK from 1980 to 1996, or a total of 5 or more years in France or Ireland from 1980 to 2001 will be deferred from blood donation in Hong Kong. It is because these people might have been exposed to  variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease ( vCJD )  or human equivalent of Mad Cow Disease due to their residence in those places during the said periods.

There is now evidence from a small number of case reports involving patients and laboratory animal studies that vCJD can be transmitted through transfusion. There is no test for vCJD in humans that could be used to screen blood donors and to protect the blood supply. This means that blood programmes must take special precautions to keep vCJD out of the blood supply by avoiding collections from those who have been where this disease is found.
