Unnecessary gatherings should be avoided, he added.
Speaking as president Director General of Police P. Doungel, IPS, said that blood donors are doing a noble job by saving lives of others. One who is eligible to donate blood should avoid hesitation on blood donation. He also congratulated all the volunteer blood donors.
