Timely Blood Transfusion for Thalassemics

WE CAN DIE OF CORONAVIRUS WITHOUT BEING INFECTED! DOES GOVERNMENT HAVE A PLAN HOW SHOULD WE DIE?

We face death. Right in front of us. Not because of Coronavirus but becauseof blood shortage. We are thalassemics. Thalassemia patients face a life threatening situation even if they don’t contract the infection as such. The same is because of the fact that these patients depend on fortnightly blood transfusions. Since blood donation camps have been cancelled to encourage social distancing to prevent Coronavirus, patients of thalassemia are staring at an acute blood shortage in very near future. Delhi alone has close to 2500 patients and India has close to 2 lakhs who depend on blood banks in Red Cross, LHMC, GTB, etc amongst others. These banks are experiencing severe shortage since people are not donating and camps are not being held. Situation has worsened because of LOCK DOWN. In the above regard, it is our most humble request to you to public to request Government to let us know whether we are to live or die waiting for advice and blood!
