Surat: in a time once the coronavirus instances are rising and the town is currently facing acute lack of blood, Surat physicians have joined hands to take care of the situation by starting a blood glucose donation camp on June 28.
Approximately 40 large and tiny hospitals in town under the aegis of the Indian Medical Association (IMA), Surat Medical Consultants’ Association (SMCA) and the Family Physician Association (FPA) will organise blood donation camps in their various centers on June 28.
