We all know that blood donations save lives. Every year millions of Americans step up to give the gift of life but 2020 has added a new twist to donating blood. COVID-19 has spread across the world resulting in millions of people becoming infected. For those who have had COVID-19 and recovered, there’s a special opportunity to help. There are treatments underway that use the antibodies from those who have had COVID-19 for those infected with the virus which can help them in their recovery. If you’ve had a positive COVID-19 test you can help by calling the Arkansas Blood Institute at 888-308-3924.
Even if you haven’t had COVID-19, your blood donation is important since it is used for patients needing blood for routine surgery or for those who have been injured in accidents of all kinds.
