Biden admin will send 25,000 masks to community health centers, food pantries

The Biden administration said Wednesday it plans to deliver more than 25 million masks to about 1,300 community health centers and thousands of food pantry and soup kitchens in an effort to reach the most vulnerable Americans.

Jeffrey Zints, director of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said the new effort would cost 86 86 million.

The White House says Johnson and Johnson are ready to delay the KVID-19 replot ‘without delay’.

Starting next month, the administration will deliver masks to community health centers and more than 60,000 food pantries and soup kitchens across the country.

The mask will be “high-quality”, “washable” and in accordance with CDC guidelines.

“We believe this policy makes so much sense that it allows people who can’t find or afford to get a mask in certain situations.” “It’s part of our equity strategy and it’s central.”

“Months ago, it would have been a good idea to send a mask to every American,” Zients said, noting that not all Americans today wear masks regularly, and noted that “not all masks are the same.”

“Many Americans need a mask that provides effective protection in line with CDC guidelines.” Zint said. “The plan to send masks to community health centers and food pantries is an effort to focus on those in need of additional support to keep people safe, and to meet the President’s Mask Up challenge for the first 100 days.”

Zints, meanwhile, said the U.S. The administration is consuming an average of 1.4 million doses of the vaccine daily, up from an average of 1 million last week. Was 1. million. He pointed to the weather delay for the sinking last week and said there would be a rapid acceleration if supply was increased.
