Published

on

American regulators relaxed restrictions that greatly limit blood donations by homosexual men as supplies are starting to become scarce during the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released modified guidelines on Marc 26, 2020 that would allow homosexual men to donate blood after avoiding sexual activity for three months instead of a year. The FDA cited the experiences of other countries such as the U.K. which have a three-month deferral and improved testing propelled the agency to change its policies.

Elected officials have pushed the FDA to allow homosexuals to donate blood in recent weeks in the wake of the Wuhan Virus’ pressure on the blood supply.

Similarly, former sex workers and injection drug users are allowed to donate following a three-month deferral. Previously, former sex workers and injection drug users weren’t permitted to donate blood.

During the Wuhan Virus crisis several deregulation schemes such as the declaration of gun stores as an “essential business” and the lifting of restrictions on out-of-state doctors practicing medicine in other states have been carried out.

Many policymakers are starting to recognize how overly-bureaucratic the U.S. has become and are beginning to take sensible actions to deregulate economic and medical activities.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
