The fast development of voluntary organ donations have made it possible for hospitals to no longer rely on death-row prisoners for transplants, Huang Jiefu, director of the China Organ Donation Committee, said on Tuesday.

He said 1,010 people had voluntarily donated their organs after death.

"Several hospitals have applied to do transplants only with sources of voluntary donations," he said.
