Blood supplies across the Lehigh Valley are at critically low levels and donations are urgently needed to help sick patients.
Some employees at Miller Keystone in Bethlehem said they haven’t seen blood supplies this low in their 15 years on the job.
Blood banks are renewing their calls for donors as elective surgeries suspended amid the COVID-19 outbreak are getting the greenlight to begin again. That’s putting a strain on the blood supply for essential surgeries.
As the Lehigh Valley region begins to re-open, area blood banks are looking for more donations.
