2020 was a record year for solid organ transplants, according to the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center. Despite the COVID-19pandemic, the center performed the most solid organ transplants across its three campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, than any time in history. "All donors are tested for COVID-19," says Dr. David Douglas, chair of the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center. "Anyone who had active COVID-19 would not be used as a donor. In fact, it's important to make that point because there have been no recorded cases of COVID being transmitted from the donor to a recipient from transplantation." (Published 04/01/2021)
