Type 0 negative blood is rare, and especially so in China. We can only receive blood from other type 0 negatives so we're quite limited, and it could be an acute problem in case of emergency.
If you are also type 0 negative and would like to know others (just in case) please send me your WeChat and I'll add you to a group.
It can not be that rare, I am also type O-, so that is 2 so far
Yes, it's good to be aware of this. Donating at the blood bank or one of its mobile units (passport required) will help, as donors are supposed to be guaranteed blood in the event they need it. Just hang on to the donation receipts.
If donors are guaranteed blood if they need it, that is really good to know.
At the yunnan travel health clinic they tested my blood as O-. Every other place I've been an A+...
@The_Dude, that's weird and a little dangerous
Yes that's not cool. I was a blood donor in my home country so I knew already. What I didn't know was that it is so rare here. You might want to have it checked again @Dude
On my birth certificate A+ and at blood donations as well.
I'm assuming they haven't recalibrated their tests in a while. Would rather be mistested as O- than anything else.
Still, I've told the important people around me incase something happens
