Babelfish translation:

More and more countries close people who have had ME CVS of blood contribution. Reason is the retrovirus XMRV, which has been found at this patient group. Month earlier this was confessed that in Canada ex-patinten no more blood can doneren. press office NZPA communicated yesterday that New Zealand will follow this example. Also Australia considers revision of its directives for blood contribution. The Netherlands has taken extra measures still no after Science-publicatie of October 2009. In this report was for the first time made of XMRV at ME CVS. `At this moment are basis there insufficiently scientific for policy at veranderen', said Sanquin Bloedvoorziening about this in Ortho to a spokesman of foundation. The medical questionnaire, in which ME CVS are not called as a ground for exclusion for contribution, has not been adapted.
Yes, well, that's clear then. :worried:

ETA I'm coming away with the feeling that they are not banning us now but someone on facebook thought that they were.

By a possible link with the virus to suppress, we are deprived of an opportunity to determine the appropriate choice. Maybe soon apparent that it was better not to give blood. "

All the translation softwear translations say no ban when read carefully. Even the one Bullybeef quotes goes on to say no ban after saying Reuters said there was a ban. It's kinda scary to think that Reuters might rely on translation softwear!!!

ETA: Thanks Lansbergen, that's what I thought they were saying!
