The authors aimed to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic affected blood banks when demand and supply were uncertain, which may inform blood bank planning for future disasters. They modeled the supply for red blood cells, plasma, and platelets and developed a heuristic to solve blood supply issues commercial software did not resolve quickly, including a sensitivity analysis.
