Phuket Red Cross calls for blood donations

PHUKET: All people are invited to come to donate their blood at the Phuket Red Cross Regional Blood Center (PRBC) in Phuket Town and at mobile stations for blood donations in Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi between Feb 8-12 to make merit for Chinese New Year, which is this Friday (Feb 12).

“At this stage, stocks of blood types A+ and AB+ are lower than normally required in our blood bank, plus A- and AB- are always required at all times as there are not many of these blood donors,” said a PRBC staffer.

“The COVID-19 pandemic remains a big problem, causing units of blood held in reserve to be much lower than required,” the staffer said.

“We have not yet had a measure to test blood for COVID-19, so all blood donors are asked to truthfully answer questions about their health and travel to hazardous areas, and to wear a mask every time when they come to donate blood,” the staffer added.

As part of marking Chinese New Year, those who come to donate their blood at the Phuket Red Cross Regional Blood Center will receive a “Supernova Chinese Calendar 2021” as a Chinese calendar gift.

Those who want to donate blood can do so at mobile stations scheduled from today (Feb 8) through to Feb 27, as follows:
