Apple donating millions of N95 industrial masks to healthcare providers fighting COVID-19

Apple is donation N95 masks to healthcare providers fighting COVID-19 in the US and Europe.

Vice President Mike Pence announced in a press briefing that two days ago that Apple would be donating two million N95 respirator masks to hospitals in the United States and Europe.

Cook explained in a tweet last Saturday:

Our teams at Apple have been working to help source supplies for healthcare providers fighting COVID-19. We’re donating millions of masks for health professionals in the US and Europe. To every one of the heroes on the front lines, we thank you.

Apple is also allowing Apple Card owners to skip their March payments without interest.

Moreover, Cook announced earlier last week that the Cupertino tech giant was making “a substantial donation to Italy’s Protezione Civile to help their first responders, medical personnel and volunteers. That donation included medical supplies.

Apple’s response so far to helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 includes other actions, including temporarily closing all stores outside of Greater China, committing $15 million to help with worldwide recovery and doubling donations, among other measures.
