Authorities call on people to donate more blood

The city has a shortage of A and RH-negative blood and authorities are asking for people to donate, officials from the Shanghai Blood Center said today.

The city likes to keep at least 320 liters of type A blood, but storage has dropped to 200 liters, an alarming figure, officials said.

To make it more convenient for donors, the Shanghai Blood Administration Office launched a month-long special campaign on its website (, allowing people to make an appointment starting from Friday through January 24.

Center officials will contact people to explain the procedure and arrange a convenient time to donate blood.
