Investigation Leads: Waiting Time for Matched Organs Still Very Short in China
(Minghui.org) Editor's note: Falun Gong practitioners have been collecting leads to assist international investigations that aim to expose the full scale of organ harvesting atrocities in China. A key fact that led to the confirmation of illicit organ harvesting is the short wait time for matched organs. This points to the existence of a live organ bank and killing-on-demand of prisoners of conscience.
Lead 1: Matching Liver in One Day
A patient in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, was able to obtain a matched liver for transplant within a day.
He was admitted to the No. 1 Hospital Affiliated with Zhengzhou University on September 1, 2014, and diagnosed with hepatic necrosis on September 5.
The hospital found a matching liver for him in one day. The patient's family prepaid 600,000 yuan as a deposit for his liver transplant. The surgery took place on September 6.
Lead 2: Matching Heart in 20 Business Days
A Liaoning Province newspaper, Liaoshen Evening, ran a story on September 23 about an English teacher getting a matching heart in 20 business days.
Ms. Hua Ning, an English teacher at the No. 2 High School of Benxi City, Liaoning Province, was admitted to a hospital in Beijing on August 24, 2014, for heart problems. She was diagnosed with a rare heart disease. A heart transplant was deemed imperative.
A matching heart was found, and she had the transplant surgery on September 16. She was transferred from ICU to a regular hospital room on September 22.
