The coronavirus pandemic has led to a decrease in organ transplants
Impacts from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic have rippled across all areas of the healthcare system, including organ transplants. On April 7, the United Network for Organ Sharing released new data showing that transplants in the U.S. dropped sharply in early March of 2020, right around the time when social distancing measures came into effect in much of the country. The last week in March saw only half the number of transplants as the first week of the month.
