Canadian Blood Services is asking Canadians to “act now.”
It reminds the public that the need for donations of blood, plasma and platelets remains.
Specifically, rare blood types and O-negative blood are required.
“O-negative blood donors play a critical role in our blood system,” the group said in a statement to the media. “As universal donors, O-negative blood donors play a vital role in any blood system because you can save any patient who needs blood.”
