Negotiating $50,000 N95 Masks To Battle Coronavirus

13 733

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!

Personally I believe we should respond like China. Don’t let people out, not advise. Bring food to people’s door! Only those at risk should be aloud in hospitals. We need to get this under control as humans. And the US RIGHT NOW is almost a quarter of the confirmed worldwide cases. Why? Because of the freedom.

Doctor Mike, I saw this video today about how masks are rendered ineffective when cleaned with alcohol to be reused. One- it's so sad that medical personnel are made to reuse their PPE. Two- I bet so many are using this method in an attempt to disinfect the masks and it's causing more harm than good. Any chance you might address this? Thank you for all that you do!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR0ulALNtb0&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR3qh1_gfHfYOkWZEjbPVPs9Au3exil-hYBEM72Aqk648s0f6GsniRn0NTY

I strongly suggest people not wear N95 masks and leave them to medical professionals as they are our protectors and we need them healthy in the front line. But with that said, I would also recommend the general public to wear masks in close proximity. Forget what other people are saying, the masks do help!! You don't need to wear them when you're out in the open but for running errands or grocery shopping you should definitely put them on. Don't forget to wash your hands with soap and never touch your face before doing so.

Hey my name is Sean. I am curious, so i live in the richest country in the world. And yet we cant just make new masks? We cant build a small factory 2 weeks ago and already have them shipped around the world? Some rich smart snob didnt already come up with a blue print of a mask that is cheap to make?

so a question that's been on my mind. Like they said in the video only at risk people like the elderly should get tested. But as far as I'm aware most of the treatment of Covid is supportive. How does it make sense to test those then, but not people who potentially go around and infect other people? Wouldnt it make more sense when someone is an at risk group, and they show significant symptoms, to just treat them, assuming its Corona, but test the people where you're not sure as to prevent the spread?

Btw I'm not sure if you're still looking for masks. But looks like KN95 masks are more widely available and according to CDC in Feb it is one of the comparable masks to N95 Try looking for KN95 instead. On Feb the CDC said it's comparable to N95. This company might have some?

NATESOR
NATESOR - Degi Síðan síðan
Appreciate what you're doing. In the real world tho, a surgical mask is actually just as effective as an N95 mask according to this study:
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/184819
If worse comes to worse and your hospital starts mandating reuse of masks, https://www.thebeijinger.com/blog/2020/02/18/how-reuse-and-dispose-your-masks-safely . Post suggests 160 degrees for 30 minutes is the least damaging way to sanitize.
ESPECIALLY to people who are hording masks, you should only be keeping and reusing a few of them. And donate the rest to your hospital. We don't need to be throwing them away every 4 hours. CDC even admits that effectiveness of masks is unlikely to decrease with extended use alone. So, with all due respect, I do think having the general public keep a very small amount of masks for personal use and REUSE is a much better strategy than lying to them and telling them they are "ineffective". If personal mask use/reuse by people who cannot self-isolate stops even a few of them from getting sick (incidentally, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19193267 suggests mask-usage reduces risk of transmission by ~75% in a care-at-home scenario), then that's less patients for you and less masks you'll have to use. I can only imagine the number of masks a hospital burns through in the treatment of a single COVID-19 patient. If mask use/reuse by the general public reduces the number of patients by even 1 in 1,000 , then you're likely coming out way ahead (not even mentioning all the additional strain another COVID-19 patient puts on the system...)

https://www.quora.com/profile/Thomas-Talhelm Links to a lot of studies that show that literally anything is better than nothing. A cotton t-shirt will still block over half of viral sized particles. So for the general public, even using a scarf is an improvement.

 Best of luck. Be careful. And thank you.
