That is beyond scary. If China can build hospitals in a week, why canít they build mask manufacturing capacity within the same timeframe?
they are. They are also delivering plane loads of aid to other countries. Not to the US of course though...

I don't have any so I'm not nogeia b'dovor, but while I like your intention, it's very easy to tell someone to donate their products. If this is important to you, maybe offer to purchase them at a reasonable price and then donate them yourself?

Not telling, asking. I work at an SNF, I know firsthand the shortage of PPE. We have been utilizing every resource to obtain. When we are being told by CDC to reuse PPE like surgical masks and to use a scarf etc to cover your face when we run out that should tell you there is a real shortage.

Hedley & Bennett is one of several fashion and apparel brands pivoting their businesses to start making personal protective gear. Hanes, the American conglomerate known for its cotton underwear, announced it would retrofit its manufacturing operations to produce masks. Siriano is using his team of 10 seamstresses to make masks full time. And Dov Charney, the former head of American Apparel and founder of Los Angeles Apparel, has deployed his companyís manufacturing facilities to start producing masks and gowns.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Please share this. It may help save lives. My alma mater with a little stroke of brilliance

Halyard H600 sterilization wrap in every hospital. Eliminates 99% + of all pass through which is more efficient than N95 masks. Necessity is the mother of all invention. Share with those that might be in need

 With respiratory masks used by health workers battling the coronavirus in short supply, the University of Florida Health’s department of anesthesiology has developed masks that can be produced in large quantities using materials already found in hospitals and medical facilities.
N95 respirator masks have been in high demand worldwide since the outbreak of COVID-19. That led a UF Health anesthesiology professor to create a simple respirator mask from the sterile wrapping that is normally used to surround surgical instrument trays before they pass through gas sterilization or an autoclave.

The innovative mask uses Halyard H600 two-ply spun polypropylene that cannot be penetrated by water, bacteria or particles. It blocks 99.9% of particulates, making the masks about 4% more effective at blocking particulate material than the N95 masks, according to Bruce Spiess, M.D., a professor of anesthesiology in the UF College of Medicine, who made that calculation based on the manufacturer’s specifications.
The Halyard material, which comes in 4-by-4-foot sheets, is typically discarded after surgical instrument trays are unwrapped and before coming into contact with patients. About 10 masks can be made from one sheet, and an estimated 500 to 1,000 sheets are likely available from UF Health hospitals every day, according to Spiess.

“This material is otherwise thrown out, so by taking it, cutting it and making masks out of it, we’ve repurposed it,” said Spiess, who came up with the idea.

UF Health hospital administrators and infection control experts have given him approval to proceed with the project. UF Health officials noted the masks, which are not certified as an N95 mask and are not intended to replace the N95, will give the health care system future capacity if there is a critical shortage of N95 masks.

If anyone has N-95 and surgical masks they are willing to donate, I know of hospitals and nursing homes in need. Just a thought before selling for a profit, remember that first responders are being told to reuse PPE bc of the shortages from people hoarding essential supplies.
please share this with them. apparently the material is in ready supply and being disposed of at hospitals around the country
