02 Jun How do people sleep at night over charging the scared public for a product that doesn’t protect them?
Whilst setting up www.theppedirectory.com we have had a number of companies approach us to feature in the directory that are trying to charge ridiculous prices for such things as masks.
An example is below,
A supplier who has been in business for less than 8 weeks is selling 5 x cloth face masks for $25 plus $4.90 0r $6.90 delivery for what is basically a folded piece of cloth!
They even have the following disclaimer!
“PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT CLOTH FACE MASKS ARE FOR PERSONAL USE. THEY ARE NEITHER MEDICAL DEVICES NOR PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (“PPE”). FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, THE USE OF CLOTH FACE MASKS DOES NOT PROTECT YOU AGAINST COVID-19, AND IS NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE RECOMMENDED MEASURES TO STOP THE COMMUNITY SPREAD OF COVID-19, SUCH AS SOCIAL DISTANCING, WASHING YOUR HANDS AND REFRAINING FROM TOUCHING YOUR FACE”
How as members of the PPE community can we put a stop to this?
