SEIU locates 39 million hospital masks

Crazy. The company has warehouses in PA and Georgia.

The union found a distributor with the masks, which are cleared for surgical use, after pleas from health care workers as new coronavirus cases surge across the state and the country as a whole.

Union officials said they also found a supplier that can produce some 20 million protective masks per week and another that can supply millions of protective face shields.

It reads like the distributor was already selling the masks, thus they knew what they had. Maybe they were waiting for prices to rise before unloading?

I also would guess the suppliers they found already knew they were suppliers and were maxing out their production :wink:

At most, the union might have uncovered some hoarding in the supply chain.

Yeah, my eyebrow raised a bit too.
