China is usually short of genuinely free blood donations, creating a market for illegal blood selling. But Tiger Temple reports that on Sunday the blood collecting buses in Beijing had temporarily stopped accepting donations because so much has been given since the earthquake. Commenters report the same in other cities around the country.
The notice thanks all the donors for showing so much care for the earthquake victims. It says the blood has been sent to the disaster zone and Beijing’s blood bank is full. To avoid wasting precious blood, collection has been temporarily halted but people can still register to be donors.
