Call for public to donate blood to stock supply for Aidilfitri

Date:

KUALA TERENGGANU: Terengganu Health director Dr Mohammad Omar today called on the public, especially in Kuala Terengganu, to donate blood to ensure that the blood supply at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital (HSNZ) Blood Bank Unit is sufficient throughout Aidilfitri.

He said the hospital’s daily requirement was between 40 to 45 pints of blood but the amount would increase to 50 to 60 pints each day during the festive season.

“So far, the blood supply in HSNZ is still sufficient, but preparations must be made in order to stock the blood supply to the optimum level as HSNZ is the main hospital in Terengganu which often receives referral and emergency cases from other hospitals.- Bernama
