Citing shortage, medics plead for blood donations after Meron disaster

The Magen David Adom emergency service pleads with Israelis to donate blood following the Meron stampede, citing a shortage.

“We are short of blood,” says an MDA spokeswoman. “We are opening sites across the country and call on people to come and donate to help with this disaster as well as our daily activities.”

MDA is specifically looking for type O donors, according to Channel 12. Those who have come in contact with COVID-19 carriers in the past 28 days are not eligible to donate blood.
