Here we are in the middle of November and what are we all talking about? The same thing we have been talking about since March, COVID-19. March/April brought nationwide lockdowns, overflowing hospitals that resulted in make-shift hospitals, shortages of PPE/toilet paper/beans and an unprecedented number of deaths as the novel coronavirus affected the elderly and back then, doctors didn’t have medicine to combat it.
Today, we are experiencing a record number of cases, in fact, more than 150,000 in a single day. Unlike March/April, we have better testing. And unlike March/April we have far fewer deaths per 1000 exposed. However, hospitals are back to being full and while this time around they stockpiled PPE for 90 days, that will not be enough to take care of the influx of patients. All this with a vaccine that will not be available until sometime in 2021.
With 3M and others at full capacity producing N95 masks, demand for KN95 masks remain strong and when it comes to PPE, TNG has the best selection and inventory just like it did back in March/April. Our FDA white list KN95 masks include:
We are selling these for about $1.50 each, the lowest price in the USA and once again, selling these to the users that need them most. Demand for disposable 3-ply masks is very high as well and unlike March/April where prices zoomed to as much as $49.99 per box of 50, inventory is available and one reason why prices are so much lower. Our ForPro brand is the highest quality and before the FDA changed its rules, our mask was (and still is) medical quality filtering out more than 95%. At $7.99, it’s the best value.
The next 3-4 months are going to be the litmus test on how the world deals with COVID-19. No matter what happens, prevention is the best course of action and that means wearing a mask and social distancing. While the NDC allowed non-medical quality cloth masks to be used instead, doctors and hospitals know first-hand they are not effective like N95 and KN95 masks and even our 3-ply masks.
Let’s see what happens, at least the voting process for the election is over with but now we have to wait until January 5 to see who wins the senate. YIKES!
