Johor govt welcomes face mask donations from other states

JOHOR BAHRU: The Johor government welcomes contributions of face and nose masks type R95 from any party, including other state governments and no-governmental organisations.

Chairman of the state Committee for Health, Environment and Agriculture Dr Sahruddin Jamal said this was because there had been complains from the public that there was no more supply of the R95 face masks in the Pasir Gudang and city area.

“It is understood that the supply of R95 masks is limited and the public is finding it hard to get them.

The chemical pollution in Pasir Gudang has led to mass buying of face masks, with many outlets having run out of stock.

Besides the N95 (respirator) masks, ordinary face masks are also in high demand.

Many outlets in the area had run out of supply since Tuesday.

Checks at five outlets in Pasir Gudang showed empty shelves.
