World of Crisis Masks
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced a lack of mask stock to prevent transmission of the coronavirus. At present, all corners of the world are experiencing a mask crisis.
Translated from Channel News Asia, Saturday (02/08/2020), the deadly virus has spread to dozens of countries. Many residents hoard stock for their own use or resale at fantastic prices.
"The world is facing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PEE)," according to WHO Executive Board Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in Geneva.
Currently, the price of masks on the market has jumped sharply to 20 times higher than reasonable prices. The crisis of the availability of masks is also exacerbated by improper use of masks by people who are not sick or medical staff.
He asserted the current mask supply is certainly not enough to meet the needs of residents.
Tedros expressed his appreciation to several mask provider companies who had promised to only sell their masks to medical staff. Thus the world can save the use of masked and used on the target.
"There is limited stock, and we must ensure that masks are obtained by those who need it most," he said.
Starting earlier this week, WHO has sent masks, gloves, and respirators to countries that need help.
