LONDON Asics Gel Kayano Shoes Outelt , July 11 (Xinhua) --- The number of people still alive in Britain after receiving transplanted organs has exceed 50,000 for the first time, figures revealed Tuesday.

NHS Blood and Transplant said in its annual report for 2017 that 36,300 people received transplanted kidneys, 9,800 liver transplants were performed as well as 3 Asics Gel Nimbus Shoes Outelt ,900 heart or lung transplants. Almost 2,000 received transplanted pancreas and 1,000 transplanted intestines.

The agency said the number of people on the NHS Organ Donor Register has also reached a record number, 23.6 million, up by 4.9 million over five years. It means 36 percent of the British population is on the donor register, compared to 30 percent five years ago.

"The milestone figure has been reached thanks to record levels of public support for organ donation and improvements in survival rates Asics Kids Shoes Outelt ," said a spokeswoman for NHS Blood and Transplant.

In the past year the number of people receiving a transplant in a single year has reached the record figure of 4,753, an increase of 20 percent in the last five years.

Survival rates for recipients of transplanted organs has continued to improve in Britain.

An adult receiving the most common type of kidney transplant during the early 1990s had a 66 percent chance it would still be functioning after five years. The new report shows adults who receiving the same type of transplant five years ago have an 87 percent chance their kidney is still functioning today.

The report cited the story of Julie Melady, 47, from Lincolnshire who had a lifesaving liver transplant 32 years ago at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for hepatitis when she was aged just 15. Now working as a mortgage and protection advisor, she went on marry and have two children Asics Womens Shoes Outelt , Billy, 10, and Jasmine, who is the same age as Julie Melady when she had her transplant, 15.

Melady commented: "Someone lost their child but they made the decision that saved my life. That gave me the chance to go on and have children - my donor didn't just save one life, they produced another two."

Last year 457 people died while waiting for a transplant and a further 875 people were removed from the list Asics Mens Shoes Outelt , mainly because they were too ill to undergo transplant surgery. There are still around 6,400 people currently waiting for a transplant in Britain.

Sally Johnson, director at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "It's amazing to picture all the people now alive today thanks to organ donation. However around three people still die a day in need of a transplant."

The deaths of five firefighters during the New Year holiday in Northeast China have raised questions among the public about the level of professionalism among the country's firefighters.

The fire, which occurred on Friday afternoon at a ware-house in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, caused the collapse of the building that housed the warehouse eight hours after the fire began. The collapse killed the five firefighters and injured 13 other firefighters and a security guard.

All residents of the building and nearby had been safely evacuated, according to a statement from the local government. The cause of the accident was under investigation Asics Gel Kayano Shoes Online , the statement said.

The firefighters, who were between the ages of 18 and 22, were buried by debris while trying to extinguish the blaze, local authorities told Xinhua News Agency. The warehouse occupied the first three floors of the 11-story building; the other eight floors were residential.

The Ministry of Public Security has urged firefighting authorities nationwide to conduct thorough inspections to eliminate potential fire hazards.

"I think it was my cousin's duty to obey the order from his superior and run into the building to put out the fire," said a cousin of Zhang Xiaokai, one of the firefighters who was killed.

"However Asics Gel Nimbus Shoes Online , I still want to know why he was ordered to go inside the warehouse (as there was nobody trapped). Why couldn't they stay outside the building and use the fire hose to put out the fire?" said the cousin, who declined to give his name.

The loss of the firefighters was met with respect and sympathy from the public, with many questioning whether a lack of professionalism was a major fact or in the heavy loss of lives in fires in China.

"Fighting fire relies more on experience and wisdom than on just being young and brave, "Zhang Hong, a commentator at China Central Television Asics Kids Shoes Online , said on his micro blog." In most developed countries, firefighting is a profession and firefighters do the job for a whole lifetime."

In China, most firefighters are part of the armed police forces, and when they retire after a few years' service, they are replaced by young armed police officers, resulting in a shortage of firefighters with rich experience Asics Womens Shoes Online , according to a report by Beijing News.

Many firefighters in China have not participated in a single fire-rescue operation during their two years' service in the armed police forces, Zhang said.

"Only when firefighting becomes a profession can the loss of lives be reduced.
