Default Many blood drives shut down because of lack of donors.

Blood centers notice drop in blood supply amid coronavirus spread

If you are healthy and can donate-- do so please!!!

Quote:
“The blood supply can’t be taken for granted,” Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Public Relations for OneBlood Susan Forbes said.

Forbes said there have been 400 cancellations of blood drives and 8,000 units of blood uncollected.

Now that is sad, especially for those who may have a rare blood type.

I try to donate platelets 24 times a year. That is the max allowed by Federal Regulations. I have the AB- blood type which is the universal donor for platelets.

Trying hard to stay healthy. Have not been to a movie in about a week playing it safe. And avoid crowds as much as possible.
