Shortage of blood donations after Tet

VTV.vn - The blood reserve of the Institute of Hematology - Blood Transfusion is seriously low. The institute said as of yesterday there were just nearly 4,000 units of blood left.

That only is enough to meet the blood needs of an emergency for two days. The number of patients hospitalized increased sharply during the first week after the Lunar New Year, so the need for blood transfusions was very high.

Blood donation activities were postponed due to the Lunar New year holiday, so the blood supply decreased rapidly. Normal blood donation operations will fully resume by the end of February.
