Blood center testing blood donations for Zika

Posted: Updated:

The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center has officially begun testing blood donations for Zika Virus.

Roughly 80% of all carriers of the Zika Virus don't show any symptoms initially, which STBTC believe makes testing blood donations crucial. They're asking those who donate to sign a consent form stating they have not been to an area affected by Zika and that they are okay with the center testing for virus.
