Even as the Tamil Nadu government has been easing lockdown restrictions across the state, with the decline in infections amid the second Covid-19 wave, blood donations in Chennai are yet to pick up pace owing to the suspension of blood donation drives in the capital city for close to one and a half years now.

Blood banks and hospitals, which used to receive over 100 donors on an average everyday, stated the daily footfall dropped to single-digits since 2020, when the first lockdown was imposed across the country.

However, with fewer accidents being reported due to restrictions on travel and planned surgeries being rescheduled due to the coronavirus disease, the demand for blood donations has seen a dip, blood banks in the city say, adding that they have enough stock for emergencies. Donors are given a call for donating blood only during emergencies these days.
