The donated blood helped cure millions of patients who need blood transfusion, especially during the COVID-19 epidemic. 99% of the total 1.4 million blood units were donated by volunteers, equivalent to nearly 1.5% of the population. Blood were mobilized via campaigns such as Lunar New Year Blood Donation Campaign, Red Spring Festival, Red Blood Drops Summer, and the Red Journey Program.
The Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation aims to mobilize more than 1.5 million units of blood in 2021.
