The health department has taken measures to ensure that there are sufficient single donor platelet machines in major government hospitals in the state.
According to health department records, till July end there were around 1,700 platelet units stocked across Karnataka’s 224 registered blood banks.
Of this, around 500 platelet units are in Bengaluru alone, in the 75 registered blood banks.
So while government hospitals and blood banks are keeping stock, preference is being given to single donor platelet system.
Now, donors are also becoming aware of donating only platelets,” a health department official said.
