The American Red Cross is experiencing a severe blood shortage and has issued an emergency call for blood and
platelet donations. Right now, blood is being distributed to hospitals faster than it is being donated.
A critical shortage of Red Cross blood donations may lead to delays in urgent medical care to vulnerable patients.
A blood emergency means there may not be enough for those in need and patient care could be delayed.
