Amazon suspends public sales of N95, surgical masks

Amazon.com banned sales of N95 and surgical masks to the general public starting April 1 in an attempt to support hospitals and governments in a fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the company said on Thursday.

According to a notice posted by the Seattle-based e-commerce giant, the suspension will also include "facial shields, surgical gowns, surgical gloves, and large-volume sanitizers." Meanwhile, hospitals and governments will be required to fill a form to purchase medical goods from Amazon.

Furthermore, the US company plans to "encourage selling partners to make additional inventory of these products available at competitive prices to these customers with the greatest need" by waiving commission for sellers who offer these items during the coronavirus-caused shortage of medical goods.
