I understand we have been closed during the outbreak, but I can help bring this up: we have all the tech necessary to build the extrusion machines and create melt blown fabric necessary for N95 masks. We have the know how of how to build extruders, and the blowers are no rocket science, nor are the recieving pieces.
I’m not saying we could build the entire mask, but the all important filtering component is definitely within our capability. Has this been considered? Am I way behind on an old conversation?
