Bhubaneswar, March 18: Government-run hospitals in Bhubaneswar are facing shortage of blood due to lack of blood donation camp.

A girl child of Kudiari village under Jatni block of Khordha district suffering from anaemia was admitted to BMC hospital here in the city on March 5. The hospital blood bank management asked the patient's guardian to arrange a donor for blood. Meanwhile, a voluntary blood donor helped her.

The same situation was witnessed at AIIMS, Bhubaneswar last week. A cancer patient from West Bengal was in urgent need for three units of O positive blood. Meanwhile, three members of InstaBlood App reached for help. 

The Capital Hospital blood bank has also faced shortage of blood. The blood bank which used to have units in surplus is now struggling to stock even 20 units a day while it needs around 90 to 100 units per day.

The BMC Hospital needs 30 to 40 units of blood daily but only five to six units are being available there.

Blood is very necessary for critically injured accident victims, thalassemia patients, brain stroke patients and surgery.

No mega blood donation camps have been organised in Bhubaneswar city during the last few months. Few social outfits are organising camps but that is not sufficient to cater to the need, said Capital administration.
