John Drury said he hoped the news would not have a negative impact on donations or use ofthe center's services. "Houston's blood supply at this time is very safe ... as safe as scientifically possible,'' Drury said. "The chance of getting AIDS by donating blood is zero, and chances of being infected through a blood transfusion now are miniscule. I think it's something like one in a million." he said.

"Right now, we're doing everything scientifically possible to screen donations. If new tests come up, we'll do those, too," Drury said. On related matters. Drury reported that the center is now doing better in donations, probably because of its own educational efforts and those of the Houston Health Department. Cooperation by the gay community in recognizing risk has helped insure a safer blood supply, he said.
