Just several hours into the war on October 7, Magen David Adom cautioned about the lack of proper blood reserves, prompting Israelis by the thousands to donate blood immediately, surpassing the need to the extent that several blood donating stations had closed, saying they now have more than enough.
They've made the point that all blood types are now in a status of full reserve, and any soldier who needs blood is getting a transfusion with absolutely no issues. Magen David Adom is telling people that should they wish to donate, it is important to first inquire about the necessity, in order to effectively distribute blood wherever required.
