Donors needed

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The New Zealand Blood Ser­vice (NZBS) is ap­peal­ing to fit and healthy Auck­lan­ders with the O pos­i­tive blood type to make a do­na­tion. There have been sig­nif­i­cantly less blood do­na­tions this win­ter due to the high rates of coughs, colds and in­fluenza and the one-week stand down pe­riod after ill­ness. ‘‘We are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing high num­bers of reg­u­lar donors be­ing too sick to do­nate which has been com­pounded by un­usu­ally high us­age of O+ blood in hos­pi­tals,’’ NZBS spokesper­son Asuka Burge says.
