Abstract

Introduction. Determining the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 in blood donors makes the control of virus circulation possible in healthy people and helps implement strategies to reduce virus transmission. The purpose of the study was to examine the seroprevalence of COVID-19 in blood donors using systematic review and meta-analysis. Materials and Methods. The electronic databases PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and the Google Scholar search engine were searched using standard keywords up to 2022-04-26. The variance of each study was calculated according to the binomial distribution. Studies were combined according to the sample size and variance. Q Cochrane test and I2 index were used to examine the heterogeneity of the studies. Data analysis was performed in STATA 14 software, and the significance level of the tests was P < 0.05. Results. In the 28 papers examined with 227894 samples, the seroprevalence of COVID-19 in blood donors was 10 (95 CI: 9, 11), estimated 5 (95 CI: 4, 7) among men and 6 (95 CI: 4, 7) among women. This rate in different blood groups was as follows: A 12 (95 CI: 10-14), B 12 (95 CI: 10-15), AB 9 (95 CI: 7-12), and O 13 (95 CI: 11-16). The seroprevalence of COVID-19 in blood donors in North America 10, Europe 7, Asia 23, South America 5, and Africa was 4; Moreover, the seroprevalence of IgG antibodies was estimated to be 23 (95 CI: 18-29) and IgM 29 (95 CI: 9-49). Conclusion. The highest prevalence of COVID-19 serum in women blood donors was among blood group O and Asia. The seroprevalence of IgG and IgM antibodies was high too.
