Cebu (CNN Philippines, August 5) -The Central Visayas police have ordered all station commanders in Cebu City to investigate the alleged rampant sale of blood plasma to COVID-19 patients.

“We are investigating it because it is illegal,” said regional police office director PBGen. Albert Ferro. “We will file cases against the culprits and their accomplices.”

The Central Visayas police chief appealed to the public not to sell their blood plasma and instead donate these to those who are in need.

Ferro said 524 policemen in Central Visayas have been infected with the coronavirus.

As of August 5, 356 of them have recovered. All are donating blood plasma to COVID-19 patients.

The other 156 active cases from policemen are still on the road to recovery. Most of them are asymptomatic, said Ferro.
