The marathon was launched at the beginning of the novel coronavirus pandemic, when, due to restrictive measures introduced to combat the spread of infection, the Blood Service experienced a shortage of donors. A series of events made it possible to show social activity and replenish the blood bank of your city to maintain an irreducible supply of highly effective blood components.

Since April, the preparation of covid plasma has begun in Moscow, and a coordination center has been created. Today, 57 out of 85 regions of our country are already harvesting covid plasma, 86 out of 200 blood transfusion stations are actively engaged in this.
