Singapore Blood Group ‘O’ stock at critical levels, will 1,000 donors come forward this weekend?:

Singapore Blood Group ‘O’ stock at critical levels, will 1,000 donors come forward this weekend?:

“As of today, the national blood stock level is about 1,200 units, enough for the next three to four days. However, to ensure our ability to continue to meet the daily transfusion needs and bleeding emergencies, we aim to bring the current bloodstock level to at least six days’ supply of 1,800 units. (This means that we will need the support of about 1,000 donors over this weekend.)”

    What a joke. 60 percenters voted for this blood bank and there's not enough blood to go around. What does this means? It means the 60 percenters weren't even interested in donating their bloody (no pun intended) blood in the first place thereby causing the shortage then why ask us the 40 percenters to donate? As a role model for us to emulate, I suggest (of course you don't have to obey me la) we first get all PAP members, all government ministries' staffs, their civil servants, SIA's staffs, PSA's staffs, GIC's staffs, GLC's staffs, ST's staffs, Temasek's staffs, Singtel's staffs, F&N's staffs, all GLC's companies' staffs, Changi Airport's staffs, Police, SAF, RSAF, RSN, ISD, Prison Dept, All MNCs' staffs, etc to donate first la. That surely should be enough what. If not, get the 60 percenters to come and donate. If STILL not enough, get the rest of 40 percenters to donate; whether they like it or not. That ought to do it what. If not, I'll come in lastly to donate la. How about that?
