Hoxworth Blood Center needs COVID-19 convalescent plasma donors

“With the FDA approving the use of convalescent plasma through the Emergency Use Authorization and area hospitals seeing a huge influx of COVID-19 patients in recent weeks, the demand for convalescent plasma has skyrocketed,” Director of Public Relations at Hoxworth Blood Center Alecia Lipton said in a news release. “In the beginning of the pandemic, we had been shipping eight to ten units of plasma a day. In the past week, we’ve averaged about 65 units shipped every day.”
