The blood donated

By 19:20 on January 6, the institute received 308 blood units, including 152 blood units of type O (higher than the average number of blood units collected a day - about 40 people come to the institute a day for blood donation).

In fact, on January 6 more people with blood type O donated, but by the end of the day only 912 blood units of type O out of 5,504 blood units were left in storage.

Blood is essential for treating patients and it is in great scarcity, especially blood type O. The National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion expressed its deep thanks to blood donors and called on more people to come for blood donation in the coming time, giving chances for patients to come home for the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday.
