Newsom commits 1.4 billion to buy PPE including 200 million masks a month:

Quote:
“We were going out and getting 5 million here, 500,000 there, 200,000 there, competing against other states, competing against the federal government,” Newsom told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. “We decided enough of the small ball. Let’s use our purchasing power. Let’s go at scale.”

Now, the state is using its power as the world’s fifth largest economy to buy on a much larger scale: 200 million a month. That’s enough, the governor says, to take care of California’s needs and potentially assist other western states. The state is spending $1.4 billion on personal protective equipment, Newsom told Californians in a Wednesday press conference.

“That is not an insignificant amount of money, but we’re dealing at a time where we need to go boldly,” he said.

California’s new plan will expand the market for protective gear, the governor said, relying on both new and existing “supply chains” from other parts of the world. It’s designed to shield doctors, nurses, grocery clerks and other essential workers from the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

“We’re creating the impetus where more supply is made available, not just to the state, but for everybody,” Newsom said.

Maybe she pulled a Ferris Bueller and lined up the pillows in bed in the shape of a human body.

Well Vega, this covid19 death toll is now leapfrogging “Obama’s” swine flu ... you grasp the concern yet?

Still can't find TP or other supplies? Willing to buy in bulk? Try Restaurant Depot. They don't think they will be overwhelmed.

There was an interesting piece I watched on-line about toilet paper and why the shelves are still large bare on the toilet paper isle compared to isles that have replenished like the bread isle.

Basically, there are two different toilet paper manufacturing process. One set up to mass produce the soft and fluffy residential toilet paper and one that mass produces the see through single ply business/restaurant/school toilet paper.

With more people at home and less people at school, work and restaurants there is an over stock of the single ply paper sitting in warehouses. Apparently it is not exactly easy or profitable to switch over the manufacturing processes and get the glut of single ply out to the stores. Because toilet paper is so bulky it also does not make financial sense to store it large quantities in warehouses.
