On this occasion Dr Gursharan Singh Narang, Secretary Thalassemia Society said that thalassemia disease is a genetically transmitted by both parents who carry the Thalassemia gene and their medical condition is called Thalassemia carrier and are physically normal so it may go undetected throughout life. He said the serious disease Thalassemia major occurs in 25 percent of their children, it should not really happen and children suffer because of unawareness in the society. He added girls and boys should be tested for Thalassemia [Hemoglobin A2] in a simple blood sample before marriage and if they are found positive, they should not marry a person who is also a Thalassemia carrier, thus children born with Thalassemia major disease will not be born. He said in case both parents do have carrier and have a pregnancy, the fetus should be tested at about 10 weeks after conception and the disease can be detected. In such a condition medical termination of pregnancy is justified.A blood donation camp was also held at SGRD Blood Bank.
