  • My brother works in construction, he's only keeping two masks, one for his wife and one for himself, and then the construction company donated the rest. Sure, some people are gonna hoard them, but others understand that hoarding can hurt more than help and others are in a more desperate need for masks because of this huge shortage.

  • Why not use gaz mask as masks

    • @Naruto Uzumaki I've been research mask and prices vary a lot. If you want the best of the best the mask set is nearing $500+ alone (US M50+extras). I found some alternative designs from Europe that use the standard 40mm NATO for half the price. If your have the money Mira has NATO approved mask for 1/2 the price.

    • The filters for those are $50+ for one that last 24 hours. Unless you are rich it isn't happening. I'm planning on buying a military grade mask soon. Might need it the way unemployment is looking for the ones not financially ready....

  • People do know doctor's masks is almost worthless, right? I mean I get doctors wear them but really it mainly blocks off your spits when you sneeze than it is protecting you from illnesses. At least there's different kinds, however I still find the device pretty stupid to still be using. Maybe that's just me. :/

    • HiptyDiptatee Jack In Asia they’re worn to protect other people. Americans are frankly fairly selfish and are unlikely to wear a mask that doesn’t protect them.

  • There's plenty of 3m home filters rated for virus. Check your local Wal-Mart or home depot. Just cut the filter and place the filter the correct way. Adding double sided tape to create a seal is best

  • Hey guys, I just want to share that you guys can use cloth mask if you can’t find any surgical mask, N95 mask, or any kind of mask. After you go out, you can just wash your cloth mask carefully and dry them and they’re ready for you to use again. I have 5 of them at home, and I use them all the time. We’re not the one who’s directly contacting infected people so if it is possible, please donate some surgical mask or cloth mask of any kind if you guys have some to spare.

  • How about the government properly fund hospitals like they should and charge taxes for or the billion dollar medial industry that charges Americans much more than any other country for medicines and make millions of profit a year provide those masks at discount.

  • I think those mask can be put first in autoclave machine then in uv light before it can be use by our frontliners then those face shields in uv lights just kill first viruses, before it can be use by our frontliners, just saying 🤔

  • I’ve been taking my mother to the hospital for years now for her wound care. Twice on the way to the clinic inside the hospital are those stands that hold face masks and hand sanitizer. Well, I like being prepared but not greedy so every time I’d pass them I’d grab maybe 3-5 or none. Over the yrs my stash had grown to me finding a box to have to put them all in. Well I wanted to do my duty and return the favor and went to bring some back and the same hospital I got them from WOULD NOT take any from me. They said they weren’t taking any from public. To maintain sterilization etc etc blah blah blah. Fine.

  • @businessinsider You don't have the slightest idea how many masks are needed, do you? Switzerland, a country of 8 million people, uses roughly 1-2 Mio. masks a day in the health sector alone. Now picture the number needed in the US with its 327 million inhabitants. Even if everybody donated the few masks they have at home, it would just be a drop in the bucket.

    • @Tremori I think thats the guy the FBI got invlved and took them from him and donated hem he had everything masks gowns goggles sanitizer and in the end he lost the lot. anyone found out to be hoarding stuff is getting them taken off them and also getting a criminal charge against them and even the FBI are handleing the larger cases
