Hundreds of thousands of respirator masks to protect against coronavirus have been sent through a decontamination system that has triggered warnings from front-line workers and has so far cost the government more than $110 a mask

The system is made by Battelle Memorial Institute, a nonprofit research corporation that has built more than 50 mask-decontamination units after getting more than $400 million in federal government contracts.

Battelle said its process allows for N95 respirator masks to be reused 20 times.

USD 110/mask? Insane & Shame! Hope more factories will be built to manufacture masks, medical protective gear & supplies locally. God speed!

Nothing, LITERALLY NOTHING, is good enough for the rabid leftstream media.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends mask-decontamination systems be used only if other supplies are unavailable. It urges healthcare workers to put a used mask in a paper bag for five days instead of using one of these systems.” Great.

More wasteful spending.

Ah capitalism. Where the wealth of nations isn’t in the people but kept safe in the capable hands of our betters.
