Transplantation and Ethical Issues in the COVID Era: Doing the right thing depends on location, resources and disease burden
Dear Jean C. Emond
I have enjoyed your presentation , the message I took from your conclusion is that since COVID will likely remain to be endemic disease resuming transplantation should be considered. I live IN Ethiopia Eastern Africa, We started our first live donor Kidney transplant center in the country in 2015.
We have a very strict criteria of selection in this related only LDKT since we dont have so much of the guagets and medications to manage the complications after transplantation. We have stopped completely transnplantation services ( used to be up to four cases a month) Because of Covid 19 since March. It seems that the newly diagnoed COVID cases are peaking up now.
What do you suggest about resuming and when?
What id the experience in New York , the rest of US and else where9 Would be greatful if you have resources
