Drive to boost blood stocks which are low
THE need for blood does not go on vacation.
With the approaching festive season and the increase of holiday traffic on the roads leading to an increase in accidents, the SA National Blood Service (SANBS) has to urgently boost blood reserves.
At a meeting in Durban it was revealed that KZN has only 1.7 days’ worth of blood supply available, which is bad news for the weeks ahead.
Donor Relations Practitioner, Khulekani Zuma, said various clinics in key areas around the province will be held at which donors can donate their much needed ‘pint’ to increase supplies before the holidays.
