Fifty dental surgeons on Tuesday donated blood in a mobile camp held at R Ahmed Dental College. The units of blood have gone to the Cental Blood Bank in Maniktala. The Indian Dental Association plans to organize more such camps to tide over the blood crisis.
“Since the donation camp had to be conducted in a mobile bus and only three donors could undergo the process at a time, 50 people could donate blood today. We are planning another one soon,” said Raju Biswas, secretary of the Indian Dental Association, who is also attached with R Ahmed Dental College, which has now been converted into a 103-bedded Covid hospital under NRS Medical College.
The minister of state for health, Chandrima Bhattacharya, inaugurated the camp on Tuesday.
