City needs more blood donors

Click to Enlarge

Due to a type O blood shortage guards of Guomao Property Management were gathered to donate blood. They were able to collect 12,000 milliliters of type O blood plus other blood types.

The city needs at least 300,000 milliliter of blood types in reserve in case of serious natural disasters or emergency should arise. But since mid July type O blood remained in the 100,000 milliliter level.  If an emergency should occur there won’t be enough type O blood to go around.

The blood shortage in July was due to hot weather, that made people give fewer blood, plus hospitals in Shenzhen conducted major operations on patients that needed type O blood. It was also know that in Guangdong province uses more type O blood since majority of its workers are from South China.
