Apple Donating Over 20 Million Masks to Healthcare Professionals


Tim Cook is back with another update on Apple’s ongoing efforts to help healthcare professionals amid the COVID-19 outbreak. In a new video posted to Twitter today, Cook said that Apple has now sourced over 20 million masks for healthcare workers, and it’s still pushing to do more.


Over a week ago, Cook said that had sourced and donated 10 million masks to healthcare professionals, and now that number has risen to 20 million. These masks are being sourced through Apple’s supply chain.


Perhaps most notably, however, Cook revealed that Apple has designed a custom face shields for medical workers as well. The first shipment of these face shields arrived at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara Valley last week, and the response from medical workers has been incredible, according to Cook.


Apple hopes to hit 1 million shipments for the face shields by the end of this week and to consistently ship 1 million per week after that.
