The City De Blasio Administration Millions Behind on COVID Mask and Glove Stockpile Goals by Greg B Smith
On Wednesday, de Blasio’s press release provided the specifics, touting 150 million PPE items on hand and a $900 million stockpile budget. “A second wave is at our doorstep, and we’re taking zero chances on preparedness,” the mayor said in a statement.
But the release did not measure the stockpile against the 90-day standard the administration had set for itself.
“The public needs to know that we are dangerously far from having enough N95 masks that are a key tool in fighting this disease,” Kallos said.
