In a statement, Dr Jyotsna Codaty, HOD, Transfusion Medicine, Fortis Malar Hospital, said, “the amazing fact about donating blood is that a single donation can save up to three lives, because we can receive different blood samples from a single donor and it can thereby accordingly be transferred to other patients.”
She added: “Any adult over the age of 18 can donate blood and it takes only 30 minutes in any licensed
blood bank; and the volume is replaced in a few hours while the cells take around 48 hours to regenerate. A
single unit blood can benefit several patients.”
Meanwhile on the professional front, Aditi is said to be listening scripts and is expected to sign new projects soon.
