The American Red Cross is calling on eligible donors as the agency is facing an urgent need for blood donations. Spokesperson Ronnika McFall says as the state opens up, more units are needed, but the pandemic is resulting in reduced collections.
“As hospitals schedule surgical procedures and treatments that were previously on hold in response to COVID-19, the demand for blood has increased,” according to McFall. “Blood drives continue to cancel due to COVID-19.”
The Red Cross is teaming up with the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 movie which is due in theaters in October.
