Washington national Cathedral donated 5,000 respiratory masks to local hospitals after they were found in the crypt (an underground vaulted room) of the Cathedral.
The staff of the Cathedral said that the N95 mask was purchased “more than 10 years ago,” that the priests could continue to work safely during the outbreak of avian flu. Mask only recently found again due to some routine work on stock in the crypt.
After health workers confirmed that the masks can still be used, representatives of the Council referred them to a hospital MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Children’s National Hospital. In the Cathedral said that they left a “small number” of masks in order to use them.
“We are pleased that, despite the fact that the building is closed, the Cathedral can do to help many wonderful people”, said Reverend Randolph of Hollerith a local television station WJLA.
At a time when the world is trying to cope with the pandemic coronavirus, the import of essential medical supplies, including N95 masks, has declined sharply due to the closure of factories in China. Manufacturers were ordered to sell all or part of their inventory domestically but not export to other countries.
Last week, the Centers for control and prevention of diseases of the United States has quietly upgraded their recommendations, arguing that the hospitals where the end of the surgical masks, you should consider re-use or use during the entire shift. And if the hospitals are completely over the mask, the Centers for control and prevention of diseases of the United States argued that the scarves or bandanas can be used “as last resort”, although some representatives of the health sector warn that the tissue masks can be ineffective.
