The pandemic has caused an almost 20% drop in organ donation and transplantation activities in Quebec, according to figures published today in Québec Transplant's 2020 annual report.
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Transplant Québec wishes to provide answers to some frequently asked questions. Transplant Québec is closely monitoring the situation and taking all the measures required to fulfil its mission.
In conjunction with National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (NOTDAW), Transplant Québec more than ever wishes to reaffirm the importance of organ donation, because the lives of patients depend on it. Even at this time of pandemic, organ donation activities continue to be carried out.
