Apple Will Donate 10 Million Face Masks to Healthcare Professionals

After declaring the company would donate “millions of surgical masks” to the US and Europe,  CEO Tim Cook officially announced Apple has sourced and will donate 10 million face masks to healthcare professionals."Apple has sourced, procured and is donating 10 million masks to the medical community in the United States," Cook says in the below video tweeted from home. "These people deserve our debt of gratitude for all of the work they’re doing on the front lines." He also took the time to recognize employees who work in grocery stores, warehouses, and even delivery people for their service during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Other tech figures like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla’s Elon Musk have also pledged to provide 720,000 face masks and 250,000 N95 air-filtering masks, respectively last weekend. Like Facebook, Apple's masks will come from a stockpile of masks leftover from last year's devastating California wildfires.
