Tech giants to supply ‘millions’ of masks to healthcare workers

While news related to the coronavirus seeing to be bleak, several huge corporations are throwing us a bone by donating medical supplies to the places that need them most. Both Facebook and Apple are doing their part during the pandemic by donating masks to healthcare workers across Europe and the United States.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Sunday that Facebook would be donating 720,000 masks and that he was looking for more to donate. He states that “health workers urgently need more protective gear.” Apple CEO Tim Cook wasn’t as specific in his numbers, but in his tweet said Apple would be donating ‘millions.’ He also included a token of respect for those on the front lines.

Since the coronavirus became a global focus early this year, the demand for masks has shot through the roof. State officials have said that the government isn’t working fast enough to supply these necessities to the people that need them across the US.

It is important, however, that we save these masks for just that – the people that need them. Part of the reason the US government is having so much trouble is that civilians that don’t need medical supplies are incessantly hoarding them. If you self isolate as is now suggested by several governments, you don’t need a mask. Please save it for the people that need them.
