American Red Cross in need of donors to prevent blood shortage

Local News

(WRIC) — To prevent another shortage, the American Red Cross said on Wednesday that they are in need of blood donors.

As hospitals resume non-essential surgeries, the demand for blood has grown. With many businesses still closed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, blood drives have been canceled.

The Red Cross says people who are healthy can still schedule an appointment to donate. The organization did experience a blood shortage at the start of the pandemic.
