One-third vaccine wasted in Jharkhand-Chhattisgarh

We all know that our country is struggling with a vaccine shortage. Because of this, the state government put all the blame on the central government. But now the central government shows everyone the data so that everyone can understand that everything is fine. In such a situation, the waste of vaccines is going to increase. Like Jharkhand-Chhattisgarh, one third of the vaccine is wasted in the state.

This data is extremely shocking for all. Jharkhand tops in vaccine wastage. 37.3% of the vaccine was worthless. Chhattisgarh is on the second place. In Chhattisgarh, 30.2% of the total vaccine is wasted. Tamil Nadu wasted 15.5% of the total vaccines.

States accuse the central government of this.

If we talk about Jammu and Kashmir, 10.8% of the vaccine is wasted in Madhya Pradesh and 10.7% is wasted. Now Jharkhand is coming and saying that this is a conspiracy of the Central Government. The Jharkhand government is very angry with the central government as it has released this data. After that, the Jharkhand government told the central government the reason for this waste and also showed the vaccination figures.

On the other hand, Chhattisgarh is second in the waste of vaccines. The Health Minister of Chhattisgarh takes this statistic as a joke. Jammu and Kashmir is also one of the states where vaccine wastage occurred. But doctors said that only 1% of the vaccine was wasted in Jammu and Kashmir.

Avoid making these mistakes while donating blood

Every year on June 14, the ‘World blood donor day’ is celebrated. This day is to make people aware of the importance of donating blood in saving lives of thousands of people.

Here are some points that you should keep in mind if you are going to do this selfless act of kindness:

  • One must have eaten something at least 3 hours before they donate blood; the donor shouldn’t be empty stomach at the time to donation.
  • One must have had enough sleep a night before they go for donating their blood. Poor sleep affects your body in so many ways that you can’t even imagine.
  • One must not smoke cigarette until 2 hours prior to the donation and should not drink alcohol until 24 hours before the donation.
  • A person between the age of 18 and 65 can donate blood and their weight should be above 45 kilograms.
  • The form that is given to you before the donation should be filled with sheer honesty since your lie can cause somebody serious trouble. The information you provide is confidential so please be honest with your answers.
  • Doctors say that if the blood report shows your hemoglobin above 12.5/dL they you can donate blood.
  • One must stay as relaxed as calm as possible while donating blood. You shouldn’t feel worried or nervous. Avoid looking at the blood if it makes you anxious.
  • One must consume healthy juices or light, juicy fruits after donation. Although you may not feel the need, your body could surely use some.
  • Just the way you do before donation, do take care of your body even after the donation of blood. Eat healthy, stay away from smoking and alcohol. Listen to your body and you will be fine. There will be not a single thing to worry about.
