Puerto Rico is now receiving donated blood for transfusions from the U.S. mainland because its own donor blood is considered compromised.
The Community Blood Center in Kansas City has joined an appeal by blood collection centers nationwide for donors to help supply Puerto Rico. Donor information can be found at www.savealifenow.org/blood or by calling the Community Blood Center at 877-468-6844.
Puerto Rico has recorded 159 Zika cases.
