South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling
The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling to bring in donors as it tries to pull itself out of a blood shortage. The center had 1.78 days' worth of blood, as of Monday morning, compared to its goal of a three-day supply. STBTC has been trying since Friday to get 500 donors per day in order to catch up on its shortage, which the center said is mostly due to a shortage of donors, though a higher need for blood has played a role. Because of COVID-19, large blood drives at high schools and other community settings have not been possible.
