National blood crisis looms

National blood crisis looms

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Saying it is the worst blood shortage they’ve seen in over a decade, the American Red Cross says there is a national blood crisis. There has recently been less than a one-day supply of critical blood types and the Red Cross has had to limit blood product distributions to hospitals, and at times, as much as one-quarter of hospital blood needs are not being met.

Red Cross spokesman Joe Zydlo says it’s a dire situation.

Anyone that donates before January 31 will be eligible for a chance to experience the Super Bowl live. You can donate at any of a number of blood drives coming up this month. You can find out where to give blood at www.redcrossblood.org
