Governor Edwards sent out an urgent call for people to donate blood. Fear, social distancing, and ‘stay at home’ orders have caused a drastic decrease in blood donations. News 10’s Mark Rigsby talked to blood donors at Vitalant (formerly United Blood Services) in Lafayette.
Louisiana’s blood banks are in desperate need of donations. If you are healthy with no COVID-19 symptoms, I encourage you to consider donating blood and giving the gift of life. #lagov #lalege— John Bel Edwards (@LouisianaGov) March 26, 2020
