April 3, 2020 12:31 AM
Lives of several children suffering from thalassaemia are at risk as the number of blood donors has decreased drastically amid a completed lockdown in Karachi like many other parts of the country.
A thalassemia patient needs blood on a regular basis throughout his life. Those who donate blood to such children have to be healthy people and their blood is first screened and then they are bled. However, a lockdown was declared in the Sindh capital to control the cornonavirus pandemic without thinking about the problems of such children.
