Negotiating $50,000 N95 Masks To Battle Coronavirus

Doctor Mike
14 148 Áhorf 1,4 m.

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 recently bought a box of 10 3M N95's masks with a respirator on the front. The top of the box was folded but not glue sealed. Is this normal?

    (This may be naive, but it's a sincere question.) We are told to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds since soap molecules bind to fatty outer membrane of virus, and break it down. So, why can't we soak used masks in a soap solution, dry them in the sun (UV), and reuse them? Wouldn't that be WAY better than using a scarf...or nothing?

    People profiteering from hoarding medical supplies and selling it to healthcare providers at ridiculously marked up prices makes my skin crawl, its disgusting. Good on you for trying to provide the supplies that are needed on the frontline, even if you have to deal with the scum of the earth to do it.

      Isabella Marie I am saying that he can save much more lives if he can stop waisting time renting trucks and going meetup with so call N 95 drug dealers. You have to understand that there is more efficient use of his time, he can do everything from home and secure much more N95 masks and other PPE ( it’s not just masks hospitals heed) by sending his crew on pickups instead of going himself. While home he can contact manufacturers, legal suppliers who can make and deliver more masks, but instead he just putting up a show for us to watch. People can be hired to run errands for him and don’t worry everything is tax deductible so he will get his money back.

    I don't know if this is the right place for this, but we own a facility that manufactures and sells n95 masks in Shandong, China. We have a 500,000sq ft facility with a dedicated ISO class 5 Cleanroom for our 300,000 daily n95 production capabilities (and 1MM masks a day for surgical masks once it's at full operation) and we are taking bulk orders (10,000 pc minimum) for shipment within China, our clients are usually in charge of export as there simply isn't enough time for our limited employees to deal with exports. We supply to one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in China called XiuZheng pharmaceutical group 修正集团 and have sold millions of our n95 respirators to them. We also supply millions of n95 respirators to Xiaomi 小米, the multinational company. We've had clients export to Russia, HK and US, though I'm not quite sure the exact logistics they had to go through through. Some clients use freight forwarding companies. The material costs have literally increased 10-fold in the last two months alone so our masks are currently more expensive than usual, for example, one ton of n95 raw material used to cost 20,000 rmb, now for the same ton of n95 material costs 200,000-800,000 rmb, which is literally up to 40 times the cost for the same exact material. There is a simply global shortage of n95 grade materials, which explains the increased costs. Even 3M masks now are sold for $4-5/mask wholesale when purchasing millions. But anyway, please contact me on Wechat or Whatsapp if you, your family or acquaintances have any questions, I'd love to help as best I could. My Wechat ID is: franktsaur and my WhatsApp ID is +16269916596. I am based in Los Angeles, but I work with the Asia team remotely. Sincerely, Frank T.

    I managed to find some masks I had bought for a trip outside the country over a year ago. I gave them to my doctor cousin who had been going to work with out masks. People needed to be giving whatever they have to our frontliners instead of hoarding them, price gouging them, or whatever. It's amazing that you were able to do this. Please take care of yourself. I am trying to remind people that I am in touch with to stay the hey inside and reduce their outings. And my fam and I have stayed in for almost three weeks now. I miss fam and friends but it's a daggam small price to pay.

      If you need to go out wear a mask 😷 otherwise stay home 🏡. The virus 🦠 wouldn’t have spread like this if we started wearing a mask from the onset. The only reason they are telling us not to wear n95 mask is because there is a shortage for nurses and doctors. Telling us it doesn’t protect us is a lie. If it don’t then why do doctors need it! Lots f essential workers still have to go out sooooo
