    GWANDA- The Minister of Health and Child Care Dr David Parirenyatwa has promised Gwanda Provincial Hospital that the shortages of blood group 'O' at the health institution will soon be a thing of the past as donors have been found.
    He told a meeting to choose the board for Gwanda Provincial Hospital on Friday that his Ministry has found blood group 'O' donors.
    "The blood shortages that the hospitals are facing especially blood group 'O' will be over in a few months' time.The blood will not only be available but will also be affordable as each pint will go for $50 which is a sharp decline from current $120," said Parirenyatwa.
