The world is counting on the consequences of the Covid 19 pandemic, which has claimed millions of lives in the last couple of years, while scientists are still looking for answers how to stop the virus spreading, what methods to use to finally feel safe [1]. As the pace and requirements of vaccination accelerate, there is a segregation and resistance among people. It is clear that the current situation, the ineffectiveness of vaccination and the kaleidoscope of different opinions are unsatisfactory. While scientific studies are underway, various solutions are being done, recommendations are being made to manage and eventually stop this pandemic, we can already make some insights and offer rational solutions and issues using our own capabilities by blood donations perspective.
