More than 500 medical workers donate blood

As type A and type O blood is in short supply in the central blood bank of Ningbo, many medical workers volunteered to donate blood in response to the call from Health Bureau of Ningbo. Till the afternoon on February 3rd, more than 500 medical workers from about 10 medical establishments have donated 160,000ml blood.
More blood is needed as hospitals receive more surgical patients after the Spring Festival, especially type A and type O. To relieve the pressure of blood supply and ensure the sufficient supply of blood for clinical use, Ningbo Blood Organization has started the emergency mobile blood bank donation campaign since January 1st. Till the afternoon on February 3rd, more than 500 medical workers from about 10 hospitals have donated 160,000ml blood.
During the Spring Festival, blood supply in the central blood bank of Ningbo amounts to 60,000ml per day. But the demand increases after the festival, which leads to a lack of blood in the bank., Xu Haidong, Deputy Party Secretary with The Second Hospital, together with other 20 people went to the blood bank February 3rd for blood donation. "Blood is in short supply recently. As medical workers, it is our duty to donate blood to surgical patients voluntarily", he said
Thanks to the emergency mobile blood bank campgain and voluntary blood donation by medical workers, the supply of blood for medical use has been largely improved. It is said that in the following days, more medical workers will donate blood, making the total number of donors reach 1000
