Lack of face masks

posted by Tracy Devin , 1589 days ago , show insights

Due to the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, people have hoarded all kinds of respirators and face masks including surgical masks, N95 rated masks. This is likely to sell later with jacked up prices, leading to severe shortage among hospital staff, health workers and in countries with severe COVID-19 disease impact.

I got common cold, I thought I would wear a surgical mask to prevent the spread and avoid scare/panic in this tough times; alas I couldn't find any surgical masks locally and only at extraordinarily prohibitive prices online.

I wish a startup could come up with an innovative way to develop respirators/masks at a cheap rate and distribute it where required; after-all business is about opportunities right?
