Blood must be relatively fresh for it to be able to be donated to those in need. However, as most people stay isolated except for essential activities, naturally less and less people are donating blood. Blood donations are decreasing dramatically, but the amount of people who need blood is not. People with blood diseases, people with long term conditions, people who are having surgery and new mothers all still need fresh blood donations. One of the best things you can do during the coronavirus pandemic is to donate blood - you could save a life. You can find more information about donating blood in the UK here.
