Since the beginning of 2020, China and several countries/ regions have been affected by the coronavirus epidemic. The coronavirus death toll in China has risen to 900 with over 40,000 confirmed cases according to official data released on 9th February, 2020.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), the world is now facing a shortage of protective equipment in the fight against a spreading coronavirus epidemic. Upon realizing the chronic shortage of protective equipment in China, BYFX Global has taken initiative to liaise closely with various medical equipment suppliers in the hopes of acquiring the medical equipment for the front-line medical team and staff in China to fight against the pneumonia epidemic within China, especially in Wuhan.
With the coordination of several suppliers, BYFX Global successfully purchased a load of ASTM-2100 Level 3 advanced surgical mask manufactured in the United States. The specifications of the surgical mask fulfill the guidelines issued by WHO on the infection prevention and control on the coronavirus with both BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency) and PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency) achieved more than 98%. With Guangdong Charity Federation’s support and help, BYFX Global donated the said masks to Wuhan No.4 Hospital to show the paramount support to Wuhan.
Wuhan No.4 Hospital announced on 15th Feb 2020 that it has received the mask donation from BYFX Global and will arrange the distribution to frontline.
