I wrote before urging people not to purchase masks for personal use. I am urging again, please leave these supplies for healthcare workers on the front lines. They are going to run out quickly.
Worse, guess where 90% of the surgical masks that are used are manufactured – China.
This supply problem is going to only get worse. I beg you. Don’t be selfish. We need to address this as a community.
Also, please read the first comment below. This is very telling about what is likely happening in many clinic settings.
