Blood ShortageBLOOD BANK OF DELMARVA
CHRISTIANA, Del. – Blood Bank of Delmarva (BBD) is calling on healthy blood and platelet donors and community partners to help strengthen the region’s blood supply by keeping their calendar of appointments and upcoming blood drives, respectively.
Forty percent of blood donations in our region come from blood drives that are hosted by schools, organizations and businesses. As these groups take precautions in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, BBD is seeing a growing number of cancelled blood drives and low donor turn-out at donor centers for the month of March. These cancellations pose a significant threat to the blood supply.
