The CEO of the National Blood Service, Dr. Justina Kordai Ansah says after two weeks of placing a distress call to the public on donating to the blood bank, there has been some results. Although not too good, the results may see some improvement in the coming weeks, she added In an exclusive interview with ADOA TV.
She elaborated that all blood services are basing their collection system on appointments, instead of the mobile collection system because of the novel coronavirus.
She continued that the service now calls on voluntary donors, who in turn choose specific days to come to the service to donate blood.
Mrs Sheila Allotey, deputy Chief Biomedical Scientist said on a normal day, the service receives 200 millilitres of blood but with COVID-19, the number has dropped to 24 in a day.
