3M to ship 500K protective masks to NYC, Seattle

3M will on Monday start shipping half a million protective N95 masks to New York and Seattle, the two largest epicenters of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States.

After a ban that prevented producers from selling industrial-type masks to the health sector was lifted last week, 90% of 3M's output will be used by medical staff.

However, the remaining 10% will end up being used by industry workers who, according to 3M CEO Mike Roman, are "also critical in this pandemic."
