Blood from those who have recovered from COVID-19 is desperately needed. (More specifically, the plasma from that blood.)

According to Vitalant, the FDA is allowing convalescent blood to be used to treat COVID-19:

The Food and Drug Administration is allowing the transfusion of convalescent plasma as an investigational treatment. Vitalant is working with hospitals to collect, process and distribute the plasma to help patients with active, serious COVID-19 infections. - Vitalant

Even if you are not aware of ever having COVID-19, your blood may still contain the antibodies. An easy test at Vitalant can determine if you are a candidate for donating convalescent plasma.

As much as this country is divided right now, I think that we can all agree that it is good to help those in need; your blood can do just that.
