Sir:I would like express my concerns about the unsafe blood transfusions. Due to the negligence of Sindh Blood Transfusion Authority, the blood screenings have not been done sufficiently and it is spreading contagious diseases. Diseases like HIV and hepatitis are most likely to spread in Larkana and Karachi. A report has said that these malignant diseases are spreading because the screenings of the blood are being done with low quality and second hand instruments.In Larkana, many people have become victims of HIV and in Karachi hundreds of children have become patients of hepatitis.Government should take action againstit because it is a very serious issue that is threatening people lives. People come to blood banks for the sake of their lives and if these laboratories or medical institutions are not giving them assistance then where will they go to seek help.UmmulQuraKarachiPublished in Daily Times, March 12th 2018.
