The United States is facing a severe shortage of blood, with donations dropping markedly since the start of the pandemic but demand remaining high.

American Red Cross Communications Manager Holly Baker says the organisation is facing its lowest supply of blood in several years, affecting the entire nation.

It currently needs all types of blood and platelets – especially type O, with currently less than half a day’s supply.

The organisation is calling for donations to help with supply issues.
