The correct answer is option C
A permanent deferral refers to a blood donor for one reason or many others can never be allowed to donate blood for someone.

Example of such refers to someone confirmed positive for hepatitis. A person with a history of jaundice of uncertain cause will not be allowed to donate blood. Jaundice is a sign a liver impairment which can also be a sign of hepatitis infection.

Residence is an endemic malaria region, diabetes and history of therapeutic rabies vaccine can be given other forms of deferral (temporary or indefinite) not necessary a permanent deferral.

History of jaundice of uncertain cause

Jaunice is a sign of liver imapirment, which might be due to HBV or HCV. Infection with HBV and HCV is a cause for indefinite deferral.
