We do understand that shortages are leaving doctors, nurses and other frontline workers ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 44 million N95 masks are in warehouses and more than a half billion on order. Also, at least 4.6 billion gloves, 6.7 million goggles and 4.8 million face shields were purchased. By fall, federal agencies aim to have 300 million N95 respirators on hand.
However, states, hospitals and nursing homes are once again running short on masks and gowns in the midst of a raging pandemic, surging cases, overwhelmed hospitals, lagging testing, and contradictory public health messages.
Because FDA Registration of their establishments is required to market these products in the U.S., manufacturers, exporters and distributors of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Hand Sanitizers are invited to contact our consultants.
