Medical workers in Suqian city were seen making registrations at a blood donation site so that they could go through the physical examination before contributing their blood.

Fewer people are willing to make blood donation at the collection site on the streets as the weather it getting colder.

The city’s blood bank is running short of blood for clinical use, in particular blood type B.

The city of Huai’an is also feeling the acute shortage of blood supply with blood type A and B running short by one third.

The supply of blood for clinical use can only meet the demand from rescue operations, forcing many elective surgeries to be postponed.
