SINGAPORE: Health authorities in Singapore are calling for people with A+ and O+ blood to step forward to donate blood as stocks have run low.
“Our A+ and O+ blood stocks are running at low levels,” said Health Minister Ong Ye Kung in a Facebook post.
He added that Singapore needs 600 units of A+ blood and 1,200 units of O+ blood over the next two weeks.
“Otherwise, major elective surgeries requiring these two blood units will have to be postponed,” he said.
According to an image posted by Mr Ong, stocks of A+ and O+ blood are at low levels, while there is “moderate” stock of AB+ blood. Stocks of B+ blood are at healthy levels.
