Appeal for blood donations as stocks dip

The Singapore Red Cross and the Health Sciences Authority are calling on blood donors, especially those in the O blood group, to donate blood this weekend.

As of yesterday, the national blood stock is about 1,200 units, enough for the next three to four days. It is hoped that the blood stock could be raised to at least six days' supply, or 1,800 units.
