Carter BloodCare says blood supplies are critically low.

In an email, CEO Dr. Merlyn Sanders said the organization's ability to meet urgent transfusion needs is in severe jeopardy.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many blood drives have been canceled, affecting the blood supply.

Dr. Sanders said 1,000 donors are needed every day for the next four days in order to meet current needs.
