Blood Donation During Coronavirus Is Safe, Curran Assures Long Islanders
Blood supply on Long Island is running low because people are afraid to donate during the pandemic.
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran says people aren’t giving blood right now because they have been ordered to stay inside. But this is creating a different emergency for people in need.
“If you can give blood, we need it. Our blood supply is perilously low, and we still have other health issues as well. Blood donations, their centers know exactly what to do to keep you safe.”
