Perform blood transfusions inside hospitals to reduce the risk of infections. You can get in by breaking the windows.

Your blood level is vital to your survival, your blood level is essentially your life level in game. As you get hit by zombies, shot or wounded you will begin loosing blood. Although you can stop the bleeding by bandaging yourself you will have still lost blood. With low blood you will have poor vision, poor hearing and may even begin to hallucinate and loose your consciousness and eventually die.

Your blood levels are indicated by the blood icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. When you have enough blood the icon will be full and green Blood full.png, as you loose blood it will become yellow Blood low.png and eventually red

. Sometimes when you fall ill a small blood drop may appear next to the icon telling you that you need to go treat yourself as soon as possible as you have contracted some kind of illness.

Luckily, if you or any of your friends are running low on blood you can perform a blood transfusion which will restore your or their blood level.
