As face masks become more important in fighting the COVID-19 spread, hospitals are facing a deadly shortage. To help fill the gap, retailers like New Balance, Ralph Lauren, and Under Armour have started making masks out of factories that once produced shoes and clothes. Business Insider spoke with two companies about how they've halted normal production, designed prototypes, and set up mask-manufacturing lines, all within a matter of days.

How A Shoe Company Makes 100,000 Masks A Week To Fight The Coronavirus

  • We are the mass manufacturer of face masks, watch our production and start business with us.

  • One thing to keep in mind with "price gauging" is that many companies are almost forced into it. Having to produce more than normal capacity massively increases marginal costs, meaning that selling at the original price may lose that company money. That's why it's even more impressive and amazing that these companies here are selling them at a loss or simply donating them. This is incredible and exactly what the world needed at a time like that.

Nike should be just done nothing.

  • In the IDworlds video titled “NYC Doctor Claims COVID 19 Is Not What They Say It Is!” Dr. Camaron Kyle an Emergency Room and Critical Care Doctor says that COVID-19 is not a viral pneumonia at all. The Doctor goes on to say that COVID-19 is not ARDS which stands for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Dr. Camaron Kyle says that the hospitals are operating under a medical paradigm or medical idea that is not true! Dr. Fauci, the Nazi Death Camp Doctor and other CDC Death Camp Nazi co-conspirators invented this deadly lie to purposely misdiagnose patents so that vital time could be wasted in treating the real cause of the patients illness so that death would occur. Then, the death would be blamed on the false COVID-19 diagnosis! This was a clever way of murdering hundreds of thousands of patients!

  • Oh no...every is pissed off about price gouging mask and sanitizer and essential items, yet okay with pharmaceuticals, hospitals, doctors price gouging a pill/drug that costs $5 to make yet charges patients $1000s. Better yet an ambulance charging $10,000 to take you from home to hospital, then charge you $45 for the sheet they cover you with, thats price gouging. Government is quick to step in on this but ignores the other. Price gouging toilet paper is not a crime. People can use their hands, but pills and drugs and medical.procedures should be.

  • For the international People by an Italian citizen This war is fought led by the politician who becomes a doctor and establishes that we must fight like the Chinese, that is, as a dictator. But Mr. Conte current Italian President is not a doctor, he is not an economist and he has not been elected by the people, he only has the support of the President because Salvini's behavior is not appreciated, which has the support of the majority of the Italian people. Covid 19 has been shown to be a poorly diagnosed flu by the Chinese. In fact, under the guidance of its doctors, the Chinese government has proceeded by treating covid 19 as a disease for pulmonary generalized venous thromboembolism. The doctor from Pavia wrote that he first detected the error of the CHINESE doctors: "I would not seem excessive but I think I have shown the cause of the lethality of the coronavirus. Only at the Hospital Beato Matteo are there 2 cardiologists who run on 150 beds in echocardium with enormous effort and one is I. Terrible fatigue! But what some supposed, but they could not be sure, now we have the first data. People go to resuscitation for generalized venous thromboembolism, especially pulmonary. it is, there is no need for resuscitation and intubations because first of all you have to dissolve, or rather prevent these thromboembolisms. If you ventilate a lung where the blood does not reach, it is not needed! In fact, 9 out of 10 die. venous microthrombosis, not pneumonia to determine fatality! And why are thrombi formed? Because inflammation, as per school text, induces thrombosis through a complex but well-known pathophysiological mechanism. Then? What scientific literature, especially Chinese, said until mid-March was that anti-inflammatories should not be used. Now in Italy anti-inflammatories and antibiotics are used (as in the influences) and the number of inpatients collapses. By taking care of it well at home, you avoid not only hospitalization, but also the thrombotic risk. It was not easy to understand it because the signs of microembolism have faded, even at the echocardium. But I compared the data of the first 50 patients between those who breathe badly and those who do not and the situation appeared very clear. For me it could go back to normal life and reopen business. Quarantine street. Not now. But time to publish this data. The vaccine can come slowly. In America and other states that follow scientific literature calling for NOT to use anti-inflammatories is a disaster! Worse than in Italy, and we are talking about old drugs that cost a few euros "The heparin, in fact. As far as can be understood, the "phantom cardiologist of Pavia" (who exists and has his name and surname) and other specialists (neurologists alarmed by the brain damage they have found) have asked to do an autopsy of some victims, especially of the dead under 40 years whose tragic aggravation was not explained by what is known so far; autopsies which, apparently to understand, were avoided and rightly so, given the degree of danger of the infection. But, as the Gazzetta di Bari writes, on the autoptic table the "anatomopathologists, at the suggestion of other specialists (cardiologists, neurologists), have made a discovery that could dramatically change the scenario:" The main problem is not the virus - explain the specialists but the immune reaction that destroys the cells where the virus enters. The problem is cardiovascular, not respiratory. People go to resuscitation for generalized venous thromboembolism, especially (but not only) pulmonary (autopsy tests are also expected on the brain, ed.). Many deaths, even in their forties, had a history of high fever for 10-15 days not properly treated. Inflammation has destroyed everything and prepared the ground for thrombi formation. It was not easy to understand this because the signs of the microembolias appeared blurred, even at the echocardium. " In a few hours, doctors from Milan, Brescia, Pavia, Bergamo, Naples, Palermo exchanged information, and unaware of Burioni's prohibitions, they began to use the drugs that suggested the results of the autopsies: anti-inflammatory (cortisone) not recommended by Chinese colleagues, but we believe we have demonstrated the cause of Coronavirus lethality. If this were the case, resuscitations and intubations are not needed because first of all you have to dissolve, or rather prevent, these thromboembolisms. It is of little use to ventilate a lung where blood does not reach. The effectiveness of the therapeutic treatment, then, leads us to believe that this is the main reason why hospitalizations in Italy are reduced. It is becoming a curable disease at home. For me it could go back to normal life and reopen business. In short, enough with the current restrictions. Not immediately, of course. But very soon ». As you can see, the newspapers quote the twitter of the "phantom cardiologist of Pavia" branded by Burioni as a buffalo, false news of a virologist at government official Giuseppe Conte. "It is becoming a curable disease at home", this is also confirmed by the medical team of Medicina (municipality of Bologna) who by administering the chloroquine early, and not after admission, manage to prevent patients from ending up in the hospital intubated, to die- . Frontline doctors exchange ideas. In Florence, heparin reduces hospitalizations in the Covid-19 wards by 25%, and saves intubation. The La Nazione article shows how the doctors involved in Covid clinics, from Milan and Bergamo to Naples, communicated the discovery and encouraged each other to use heparin "immediately, at the first symptoms". And they are creating a protocol without waiting for the authorities. Which authorities do they do? From the media: "Aifa, the Italian Medicines Agency, asks for the safety and efficacy of heparin to be treated in Covid 19." Since the therapeutic use of low molecular weight heparins is entering clinical practice on the basis of incomplete evidence and with important uncertainties also with regard to safety, the urgent need for randomized studies that evaluate its clinical efficacy and safety is underlined ”. The security? Ridiculous objection: heparin is not a toxic, doctors who did not know how to use it correctly (as a drug has existed since 1916) should change their profession and / or primitives: UNDER MEDICAL PRESCRIPTION. Don't administer it yourself, you get internal bleeding!] All the doctors I know are rightly excited. "Many colleagues have told me about it," says Francesco Bussu, an internationally renowned ENT surgeon in Sassari: and considers the idea of ​​the cardiologist from Pavia "very plausible; it seems that it is a vasculitis rather than a pneumonia, and that it dies from pulmonary embolism ". They understood that many, too many, died intubated and tracheotomized (without utility) due to a diagnosis error: it was believed pneumonia, instead it was pulmonary embolism. Frontline doctors have corrected the diagnosis, and hopes are open. Immediately Chinese and British published: "In the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis' led by hematologist Jecko Thachil of the Department of Haematology of the Manchester Royal Infirmary (Gb), the use of heparin in Covid-19 patients could have anticoagulant effects, as well as anti-inflammatory and even antiviral. effect_bs7RRSfvWIHCIEOC0gdvSO.html Here the complete original article by Dr. Jecko Thachil: https: / / f / 10.1111 / jth.14821 Also SEE THE VIDEO OF DR STEFANO MANERA TO ADDITIONAL CONFIRMATION OF THE SITUATION. foreign Minister di maio THANKS UNNECESSARY AID SHOULD DECLARE THE CHINESE ERROR AND SORRY WITH THE EUROPE AND THE WORLD FOR THE CHINESE ERROR DISCOVERED BY AN ITALIAN DOCTOR, EVEN MORE SERIOUS ERROR THE ISOLATION OF THE ITALIAN PEOPLE AS AN ITALIAN CITIZE SEEKS OF THE GOVERNMENT of the president giuseppe conte FOR ABUSE OF ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL DECREES AND INABILITY TO MANAGE CRISIS LYING ON THE TRUTH OF THE CURRENT SITUATION.

Because buying mattresses is definitely hard to keep afloat once this is over and having his employees working fulltime producing masks for no profit. I understand he thinks once it's over everyone will support his business but how many mattresses can one buy? He needs to rethink the strategy because the government don't help mattress companies like they do banks and car manufacturers. But I do respect him!
