Lockdown causes organ shortage

I heard on Science Friday that because of the lockdown, traffic accidents have fallen 23%. Because 33% of transplant organs come from traffic accident victims, the lockdown has exacerbated the shortage of transplant organs. http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/sciencefriday/scifri202005221.mp3 , about 4 minutes in.

So get out there and generate an organ for transplant!

After you.

Don’t worry. There’ll be plenty of supply as people go nuts the longer they are locked up.
