Mayo Clinic Q&A: Current Blood Supply Needs During the COVID-19 Pandemic

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded March 16th, 2020.

Guest: Justin Kreuter, MD (@KreuterMD)

Host: Dr. Tom Shives and Tracy McCray

With recommendations to stay home during the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. now has a critical blood shortage. Blood donation collections have plummeted due to canceled blood drives and concerns about being out in the community. Almost half of U.S. blood collectors are reporting that they only have a two-day supply or less of blood products.

On today’s Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Justin Kreuter, transfusion medicine specialist with the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center, explains how new blood donors are needed to step up and fill the void.
