Importance of blood donation increased in the midst of corona epidemic
Malwanchal University Prof. Chancellor and Head of Index Department of Pathology Dr. Sanjeev Narang said that blood testing is being done through state-of-the-art equipment in Index Hospital. In the Corona period, along with plasma therapy, the hi-tech technology of blood units is proving to be very helpful for many patients. Sometimes patients do not get blood on time, due to which they die. In such a situation, the blood given by the donors becomes life-giving for those patients. He said that the importance of blood donation has once again increased significantly amid the corona virus epidemic. Despite the many challenges during the pandemic, donors in many countries, especially in India, continued to donate blood and plasma to patients who needed it.
After Corona, the responsibility of such institutions has now doubled.
He informed that World Blood Donor Day is celebrated every year on 14th June to promote blood donation. The main purpose of celebrating this day is to provide blood according to the need in the world. Many organizations around the world organize blood donation camps, where people donate blood of their own free will. Helping a needy person is not less than a virtue. Similarly, giving blood to someone means there is no greater donation than donating blood. Today in Indore, many such voluntary organizations are helping people day and night in case of need of blood in accident or any other disease. After Corona, the responsibility of such institutions has now doubled. , According to a report, about 1.36 lakh women die every year due to lack of blood in their country. Which accounts for 25.7 percent of deaths during pregnancy and childbirth worldwide.
