Coronavirus Outbreak: GLAMCOR - Social Lighting Brand Donates Face Masks to US Hospitals
USA: GLAMCOR GLOBAL LLC, an industry leading lighting company, has joined in the efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic through the donation of KN95 respirators to hospitals in the United States. Such respirators have proven their significance in the ability to prevent and control the viral disease from spreading through airborne pathogens, a necessity in great demand for healthcare workers globally.
The COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus is considered lethal and declared to be an official “Pandemic” by the World Health Organization, having affected more than 200 countries worldwide. The number of persons infected has increased to more than 1,000,000 globally. Throughout Italy alone, over 100,000 cases have already been confirmed and over 15,000 fatalities already reported. The level of severity in Spain has proved equally as dismal with the death toll surpassing 10,000 with over 120,000 confirmed cases.
As of Wednesday, April the 8th, 2020, the number of Coronavirus-linked deaths in the US has risen to over 14,000 total. According to the New York City Department of Health, the death mark increased by 305 persons, reaching a total statistic of 1,867 deaths on the previous Friday alone. With an overall number of cases being more than 100,000 and deaths surpassing 4,000, the state has proven itself to be one of the most clustered where viral contamination is concerned. And just as assured as New York’s cases rose, so did the cases of the states around it. In New Jersey, over 700 deaths have already been attributed to the virus, in Michigan, over 500, and Louisiana, over 400. According to the health departments of each state, such fatalities will assuredly rise without the proper protection and control.
Coming into last Friday night, there has been a rise of more than 275,500 positive novel coronavirus cases across the United States. This indicates an increase of over 30,000 cases from Thursday night alone. It is important to note however, the tally of COVID-19 cases takes into account - active cases, those who have recovered, those who have passed away, and those who have been sent back to the United States for a state of quarantine recovery.
As the death toll has multiplied to more than 1,000 persons in one day, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends the use of surgical masks and respirators to prevent the spread and contamination of Coronavirus disease. In closer detail, the CDC has urged all citizens to wear “cloth face coverings” in places (like grocery stores) where it is nearly impossible to qualify social distancing. Health officials have also stated surgical masks or respirators should be retained for hospital staff herein.
As the need for personal protective equipment becomes more in demand, GLAMCOR GLOBAL and RIKI Loves RIKI have joined in the initiative through the donation of KN95 masks to US health and urgent care units. Having closely studied the virus and its global effects, GLAMCOR Global Co-founder Wanchen Kaiser, a Chinese native herself, has invested in the bulk purchase of KN95 surgical masks on behalf of the company. GLAMCOR has already donated the respirators to their customers, its community, and to followers of their Instagram accounts who have requested masks on behalf of healthcare professionals.
GLAMCOR and RIKI Loves RIKI have pledged respirator and surgical mask donations of surgical masks to healthcare centers nationally, and to heavily promote outside donations in this state of emergency. The company is as equally extending its efforts in awareness through Live-stream Instagram tutorials instructing its viewers on the proper sanitation practices as well as proper utilization of their masks.
In conjunction with all stated above, GLAMCOR and RIKI Loves RIKI would like to encourage similar enterprises to join in the cause against the virus through the donation and supply of Personal Protective Equipment. During this time, social responsibility becomes the burden of each and every citizen, wherein those who are able to help in the fight are credulously encouraged to do so. We graciously thank all healthcare and essential workers for their service and most importantly for putting themselves on the line in the interest of our safety.
