The American Red Cross is testing all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus. 


“Time and time again, San Diego has answered the call when our blood supply becomes critically low,” said Kyle Kraska, sports director, NEWS 8.

“Now, COVID-19 has also presented challenges for our San Diego Food Bank as it is distributing more than twice the monthly meals to San Diegans in need. These concurrent drives will go a long way to satisfying two of our most urgent needs.”
