CEBU, Philippines —  Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak is urging barangay officials in Cebu City, especially for those who have residents who had recovered from COVID-19, to encourage them to donate their blood plasma.

This, after the Department of Health, through the Regional Blood Service Unit, has asked those who had recovered to donate blood plasma.

Tumulak said this would greatly help those who are COVID-19 positive who are admitted in the different medical facilities.

“Importante kaayo nga atong matabangan ang naa karon sa sa atong mga tambalanan kay kini man gud positive recovered patients sa COVID-19 duna na sila’y antibodies nga makasugakod sa pagpakgang sa kagaw ug sa samang higayon pagpakusog sa ilahang immune system.  Mao ng base sa pagtuon gani sa usa sa mga pribadong tambalanan dinhi sa sa siyudad sa Sugbo ang nagmalampuson sa gipahigayon nga plasma convalescent therapy,” Tumulak said.

He added that those who would be donating need not worry, since the process does not take so much time.

“Atoang gihangyo nila nga mapasalamaton sila sa Ginoo, gitagaan sila og laing kinabuhi, naayo sila nianang maong virus. Angayan lang pud bugtian nila og agig pasalamat sa kahitas-an pinaagi sa paghatag nila og dugo,” Tumulak added.

Tumulak is coordinating with Cebu City Association of Barangay Council President Franklyn Ong for the initiative.  GAN (FREEMAN)
