There’s a national blood shortage due to COVID-19, and Illinois is experiencing a critically low supply of all blood types.

She joins Ji to discuss the critical blood shortage crisis, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on supply and use of blood for transfusion, and how people can sign up to donate. If you are healthy and can donate blood, please consider doing so. For more information, visit www.versiti.org.
