"The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has sent 200 units to hospitals treating the injured — including Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville, the San Antonio Military Medical Center trauma center and to University Hospital," said SA2020 on Twitter. "STBTC is asking anyone with O+, O- blood or those willing to give platelets to donate, as the supply — which is needed most during traumas — is low."
