Netherlands fact of the day

Some 12,000 more people have registered as organ
donors in the Netherlands since a Dutch TV hoax that featured a
"competition" for a kidney.

The Big Donor Show was revealed to be a hoax as the fake donor was apparently about to reveal her choice of patient.

But Dutch media say the number of people registering as
organ donors has jumped since the hoax. The usual monthly figure is
just 3-4,000.

Will this greater interest in organ donation last?  Here is the link and story.
