Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan today launched the eBlood Services Mobile Application, in partnership with the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS), for easy access to blood in this critical time of coronavirus pandemic.
Notably, this initiative would help the people to get the blood on time just by registering on the application. Also, people can demand up to four units of blood.
"People who need blood can get registered on this app and know from where they will get blood," Mr Vardhan said while speaking on the occasion.
"One can seek blood up to four units. The Indian Red Cross Society's blood banks will wait up to 12 hours for them," he added.
He appealed to people to come forward to donate blood as their contribution is required more than ever now.
