This is another challenge during the COVOD-19 pandemic. Not enough organs are donated, and the pandemic only adds a barrier to life saving organ donation. We must all remember that although COVID-19 is the current center of attention all other diseases have not ceased to exist.Many that need organ donation to save individuals lives.
