The county’s health care leader is in dire need of Type O+ blood.

According to Lee Health, their supply of Type O+ blood remains critically low and are below normal supply levels for blood types across the board.

“The coronavirus pandemic has led to many canceled blood drives and the depletion of our supply,” said a Lee Health release.

According to Lee Health, all blood donated stays within their health system to care for patients in Southwest Florida.

“We re asking our community to please consider making a donation at one of our blood centers to help save lives,” said health officials.
