DUTCH CORONA MASK
We support or create initiatives to set up a Dutch supply chain for face masks to protect against COVID-19 virus.
What we do
We concentrate on face masks. Please do not contact us for other topics like respiratory devices, as there are many other initiatives in that field already.
How we do that
We store information (or provide links to it) that is frequently asked for.
Our initiative consists of 5 tracks. This enables us to allocate experts to particular subjects.
WHO ARE WE
We work on a voluntary basis. We feel it as an obligation to make our knowledge available to those who need it.
WHY WE DO THIS
When this initiative started at March 18, 2020 the daily use of (disposable) protective masks in Dutch hospitals was 100.000 per day (50 hospitals x 2000 masks)
Currently, the total need is calculated as 1000,000 masks per day.
Through our initiative we came across a fast track for certification of masks according EN149 via a test organization in Belgium. In case you want to explore that route, contact us via the contact form on the website and we will establish a direct link for you.
