Urgent need of A+ blood in SMCH, Civil; forums, doctors appeal to donors
An accident that turned into a carnage last night in Silchar’s Meherpur area has left many fighting for life. As many as 19 wounded are now admitted in Silchar Medical College and Hospital. The emergency has raised the demand for blood manifold and the blood bank is finding it difficult to meet it.
As per available information, there is an urgent requirement of A+ blood in SMCH. “There is a huge requirement of blood units at SMCH. At present there is no stock of A+ blood group in both the blood banks and only a few units of AB+, O- and AB- are left out. It’s our earnest request to the people of Silchar to come forward and help us meet the huge requirement,” said, Sweta Roy, Secretary, Barak Valley Voluntary Blood Donors Forum Women’s Wings.
Mithun Roy, secretary of Saksham, Southern Northeast added, “The cries of the family are pathetic. SMCH has been flooded with pathos all over. I request people to come forward and donate their blood at SMCH blood bank.”
The first appeal to donors had come from Dr. Dawipayan Deb. He posted on Facebook, “As an on-duty doctor, I have the first hand experience and have seen how the injured were rushed in today. There was blood, cries and grief everywhere. I have never experienced such a situation in my life before. Young patients coming in with their bodies drenched in blood. As a doctor, I kept aside my emotions and started treating each and every patient like a family but, it moved my heart as well. Within minutes my fellow colleagues rushed to the spot leaving aside their other jobs. From the top of the hospital administration to the interns, all rushed in to help the injured. My empathy to the people who have lost their loved ones. The injured are being taken care of by the best medical team. I request the people of this town to line up tomorrow and donate blood for the injured, because these are the circumstances when we should all unite to save lives. Stay safe, pray for the injured and please don’t resort to any kind of violence.”
