Negotiating $50,000 N95 Masks To Battle Coronavirus

  • We are putting our healthcare professionals who are on the frontlines of this coronavirus pandemic at serious risk when we send them out without proper personal protective equipment. As my colleagues and I continue to treat patients we are running critically low on N95 masks. I am no Mr. Beast, but I decided to personally take $50,000 and buy as many masks as I could and donate them to our struggling healthcare system. CONTINUE READING!
    As you see in the video I was only able to complete about half my order so I'd like to donate the last $20,000 to a hospital or charity that YOU deem appropriate. Please comment and upvote where you'd like to see this money donated and after 72 hours I will make the donation. Thank you!

    I'm in Vancouver B.C., and there's actually a lot of offers people are getting, from China, for N95 or surgical masks. But the masks are made in China, massed produced in a rush, with 70% of it not passed quality inspection.
    They do admit theyre not certified.
    So then, I looked into whats so important of the N95 or Level 3 surgical masks being quality tested etc? Apparently......its a big deal.
    Some masks, if not made properly, actually can have loose particles from the fiber of the product, that could potentially be inhaled by the wearer 🤦.
    I'm now wondering how many of these not certified or non quality inspected masks are floating around? 🤷
    At least the ones in this video are from the States.

    Weren't surgical masks worn by surgeons so they wouldn't spread pathogens to patients in the operating theatre? The fibres in the masks incubate pathogens, surely.

    Just a thought. Donate blood. I donated at a blood mobile outside of a fully packed semi fine dining restaurant in SC, GREENVILLE. They were their all day, with $20 gift cards, not one person donated. Blood expires, people are afraid of the virus, but if donors stop participating then your local hospital could run out.

    There are some PWD People With DISABILITIES that NEED these for their own personal Use. I have had to use one for over a year or so. I am on a medication called Methotrexate that lowers my Immune System. I have had to use these Vogmasks to help me from getting sick all together. There are some people who have used these masks because it is a "Trend" like people who can really eat "Gluten" and yet they will eat Gluten-Free things anyways. This type of person takes away from those who NEED them.
    When all of this started in Salt Lake City Utah. When I went to the store Non-Disabled people were "Hoarding" things that I and many other PWD NEEDED! Things such as N-95 Masks, Latex-Free Gloves, Clorox/Lysol Wipes etc, Rubbing Alcohol and other things that we with low immune systems needed. The thing that is so Stupid is that stores still let people traipse through their store touching everything inside. They need to set up lines outside and have people come up to a tablet where they can order and pay for items in real time. After you pay someone else inside the store will gather and bag up your groceries and then they bring them up to a certain point where they are passed off to the first person that checked your ID. This means that someone can't just go and purchase certain items and then go to the next store and do the same thing HORDING things they don't need.

    You call yourself a doctor. What are you even doing to help the sick? Anyone can donate masks. You've obtained the knowledge to help others dealing with illness why aren't you on the frontlines somewhere helping patients? I'm about to go find a way to volunteer at a hospital cuase it breaks my heart to see these overworked physicians and nurses who are actually helping people and your laughing looking like happy dweebo in the thumbnail, posting and editing videos for views? Shameful. Go do something "doctor".

    Why stop buying mask. Everyone should start wearing a FFP3 or N95....all countries round the world should start the production of these mask. Once everyone is wearing one, those whom are asymptomatic won’t be spreading it, the healthy ones would stay healthy. Koreans are wearing mask indoors n outdoors. It will slowdown the virus until a cure be found or develop a vaccine .

    We doctors in europe have to take the corona tests with normal surgical masks every day because we re to short on n95 masks. But as its supposed to be transmition by dropplets rather then aerosols I dont really see a huge problem with that. Aerosol producing interventions like an intubation or a bronchoskopie are done only with n95 (or ffp2 as they are called in switzerland) masks of course

    I have a contact in China that is very cooperative and able to ship medical supplies to the USA. I've called local hospitals in my area (Chicago), the mayor's office, and even Walgreens and no one has followed up with me. I hear of a severe shortage but no one is jumping on this. I've helped connect them to hospitals with shortages in Europe but why are things so slow in the US? I'm not affiliated or here to profit from sales. Just a concerned citizen who wants to help!
