The Daily Mail reports that 17,500 people are urgently needed to donate blood within the next week or stocks could fall to just two days worth by midweek, according to Australian Red Cross Lifeblood.
The fall in stocks of A, O and B stocks has been caused by cancellations and no shows amid the cold, flu and COVID-19, with the Red Cross saying their reserves are set to hit the ‘lowest point since the pandemic started’.
Take 45 minutes out of your day to save a life, one day it might be your turn to need blood. Pay it forward THIS WEEK!
