Blood banks in Telangana State (TS) are unable to meet the requirements of patients, due to shortage of blood. Most blood banks have gone dry and authorities are unable to pinpoint the reasons for this. Lack of donors and apathy of officials are being cited for the low availability of blood. Blood transfusions are a must for emergency surgeries, like in the case of accidents. Drug Control authorities have stepped up measures to collect blood via camps.
