Red Cross faces critical type O blood shortage

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) The American Red Cross urges eligible type O blood donors to give now. It says some hospitals have less than a two-day supply available for emergency rooms.

Type O blood is known as the universal donor and is the blood group most needed by hospitals.

The Red Cross is giving people that donate now through June 10 a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email.
