The Inland Northwest Blood Center announced good news on Thursday regarding the levels of O-negative and O-positive blood. The only supplier of blood for area hospitals reported that the supply of these types of blood has reached safe levels. INBC said that thanks to the donors who have rolled up their sleeve to give blood, they have seen nearly 500 type O donors since Monday. This is a huge response that has brought the blood supply up a remarkable 90% in the last few days.
INBC reminded donors the need for blood does not go on vacation. They urge donors who have made an appointment to keep them in order to ensure blood supply remains at needed levels. INBC needs 200 donors every day, with nearly 90 of those being type O.
