OneBlood seeking more donors as coronavirus cancels over 2,300 blood drives

OneBlood says that they need blood donors now more than ever as coronavirus concerns cancel blood drives.

They said that over 2,300 blood drives through May have been canceled as the virus limits where they can go. That number is reportedly climbing and that said that this will limit their operations for months to come, especially as they claim someone in this nation needs a blood transfusion every two seconds. 

"As you know, the need for blood does not stop," OneBlood said. "Donors are responding and coming in to donate, btu we will need this level of response to be sustained for the long haul."
