The American Red Cross says it's experiencing an emergency shortage of convalescent plasma.
American Red Cross says as the number of coronavirus cases increases across the U.S. Convalescent plasma products are now being distributed faster than donations are coming in.
Those who would like to donate can find more information on the American Red Cross website.
What is convalescent plasma?
According to the American Red Cross, convalescent plasma is the liquid part of blood that is collected from patients who have recovered from COVID-19 and might help some patients recover from COVID-19.
The American Red Cross says that a donation of convalescent plasma from one recovered COVID-19 patient has the ability to help up to three patients recover from the virus.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says convalescent plasma is being investigated for the treatment of COVID-19 because there is no approved treatment for the disease at this time, and there is some information that suggests the plasma might help some patients recover from the virus.
