Low blood supply of universal donor, local drives to be held

The New York Blood Center, which provides blood, transfusion products and services to hospitals in parts of Connecticut, says it has less than a two-day supply of O-negative "universal donor'' blood heading into the Labor Day weekend. 

 

The center said Thursday it tries to maintain a seven to nine-day supply of all blood types.  O-negative can be transfused into anyone during a trauma situation when there's no time for blood typing. 

 

There are blood drives Thursday at Danbury Hospital and Friday at Walnut Hill Community Church in Bethel.
