At a time like this, with people staying inside on their own or, in many cases, being told to stay inside, to curtail any further spread of the coronavirus, some have wondered about donating blood or services to groups like the American Red Cross. Latest reports indicate that the need for blood is running higher, especially now that a number of blood drives have been cancelled.
According to the American Red Cross website:
Right now, the American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood product donations as uncertainties remain during this coronavirus pandemic. Blood drives continue to be canceled at an alarming rate and patients need a sufficient blood supply throughout the many weeks of this crisis and beyond. Healthy individuals are needed to schedule an appointment to give in the days and weeks ahead to help patients counting on lifesaving blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma.
So if you’re healthy and you can find a way to safely donate, please do.
