Local organizations push blood donation as blood bank runs low
Sunday, October 18, 2020
Local organizations held a blood donation event today amid low blood inventory.
Medical Conscience and Hong Kong Quality and Talent Migrants Association jointly organized a blood donation event today.
More than 50 donors have participated in the event including doctors, dentists, and nurses.
Lee Cheuk-kwong, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service, said the number of blood donation events at schools, public and private institutions has decreased due to the pandemic.
He expects the demand for blood will increase as the Hospital Authority will gradually resume non-emergency services.
