Write now - the available research have shown that individuals are not at risk of contracting COVID-19 through blood transfusion. Since respiratory viruses are generally not known to get transmitted by blood transfusion. As COVID-19 virus relies on binding sites of host cells - proteins which allow the virus to attract and invade .The binding sites for COVID-19 are located in respiratory tract especially lungs and the digestive system. Blood cells don't have binding sites COVID-19 is looking for..So - right now there is no proof of COVID-19 getting transmitted from blood transfusion. In future - we may not know , any research or evidence in this field may come. THANKS
No. There is absolutely no evidence of transfusion transmission for COVID-19, or any other coronavirus This also applies to other coronaviruses such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), and the unrelated influenza viruses.
Covid virus has been demonstrated in seminal fluid of COVID affected person. If this is due to viremia, there is possibility that Covid can spread through blood transfusions.
Possibility on contracting corona virus by blood transfusion is not totally ruled out. ICMR guildlines are in the favour of transmission.few cases has been reported.

So far no studies are supportive to the statement of contracting viral from blood transfusion.
Not studied so far But we can appreciate in acute stage it is possible
