OUTRAGEOUS: American Red Cross accepting coronavirus-infected people as blood donors, claims coronavirus can't be spread through blood
(Natural News) In the latest example of outrageously bad information that we’ll file under “self-serving ignorance,” the American Red Cross has publicly declared that asymptomatic coronavirus-infected individuals can give blood, even claiming they won’t be tested for the coronavirus when they do so.
It harkens back to the 1980s when the American Red Cross claimed HIV couldn’t be spread through blood and refused to test people for the HIV virus. (See more details, below.)
“There is no test to screen blood donations for the coronavirus and other respiratory viruses,” says the FAQ page of the American Red Cross blood donation website.
That same page goes on to make the bizarre claim that the coronavirus cannot be transmitted via blood, even though it’s obviously carried by the blood throughout the body. Via the American Red Cross:
It’s important to emphasize that there are no data or evidence that this coronavirus can be transmitted by blood transfusions, and there have been no reported cases of transfusion transmission for any respiratory virus including this coronavirus worldwide.
The American Red Cross is suffering a catastrophic decline in blood donations due to people staying home, so now they’re resorting to bizarre explanations to try to convince asymptomatic coronavirus carriers to give blood. (Question: Wouldn’t this potentially infect future patients who need the blood transfusions?)
Lest you think we are fabricating this insanity, here’s a screen shot from the American Red Cross website, RedCrossBlood.org:
DIRTY BLOOD: The coronavirus is widely known to infect the blood and the heart, yet the American Red Cross says it’s nothing to worry about
Despite the American Red Cross’s best efforts at telling us otherwise, the coronavirus doesn’t limit itself to lung tissue in the human body. It circulates throughout the body, infecting heart tissue, kidney tissue and even nervous tissue. As this article on HNGN explains, the coronavirus infects:
- The lungs
- The stomach
- The circulatory system – “A 2014 study concluded that 92% of MERS patients had signs of the coronavirus outside the respiratory system.”
- The liver
- The kidneys
The way it reaches all these organs, of course, is through the blood. This Healthline.com article — a “mainstream” health site — also openly discusses how the coronavirus moves through the “heart and blood vessels,” infecting the stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys and more.
Ultimately, this means the American Red Cross is probably going to spread the coronavirus through blood transfusions. But because they desperately need more people to give blood, they are claiming the coronavirus can’t be spread through blood. But what else is new? The American Red Cross also refused to test blood for HIV during the AIDS crisis. As explained by Grunge.com:
During the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, one of the ways people could contract HIV and AIDS was through blood transfusions. Since the American Red Cross was a huge source of that blood, there was a demand for testing. So in 1983, according to the LA Times, they released a joint statement with the American Association of Blood Banks and the Council of Community Blood Centers, declaring, “The presently available medical and scientific evidence that AIDS can be spread by blood components remains incomplete.” Testing for HIV was rejected.
This was ridiculous, since the CDC had already announced their evidence that “the disease posed a serious threat to the blood supply.” And Red Cross internal memos from the time clearly show they knew “the available evidence strongly suggests that AIDS is transmissible” through blood. The organization simply didn’t want to do the tests because they thought they cost too much. Instead, they just banned all gay men from donating.
It seems that if you want truly bad information about the coronavirus, listen to the WHO, the CDC or the American Red Cross.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.
Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.
The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.
Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.
Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.
With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.
Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
