Overwhelming response at National Blood Centre. It’s so overcrowded they cannot control the crowd. Currently they are sending back people who have come after taking down name, contact and blood group. Don’t rush there now go leisurely as the crowd subsides

Seems National Blood Bank is unable to handle the massive turn out of people who are risking their own lives to donate blood. This is my Sri Lanka. This is what it means to be Sri Lankan. As long as this spirit remains this country will not die! @NamithSwarnasinghe

The hospitals were able to meet with the needs of blood requirement with so many people turning out to do their bit. Among all the horror of the barbaric act, these people serve as restoring faith in humanity.
