Apple decides to distribute 20mn masks

The major tech company Apple had already contributed 20 million surgical masks from across the globe to aid the shortage at this time of crisis, chief executive Tim Cook mentioned in a video posted to Twitter on April 5, 2020.

But the organization had also made its own transparent security face shield and started mass manufacturing at its factories in the US and China, he added.”We plan to ship over one million by the end of this week,” shared Cook.

Initial distribution would be aimed at the US but the organization hoped to “quickly expand distribution” to other nations, he stated.

Apple collaborates with international organizations that have modified their manufacturing lines to meet the demand for protective gear, including Italian luxury brand Prada.
