Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced on Twitter that “Apple will design, produce and distribute more than 1 million face shields a week.”
According to an article on Linkedin, “The protective gear will first be distributed to medical workers in the U.S. with a goal to expand distribution overseas. The tech giant has also sourced 20 million face masks to donate globally in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.”
“We’re working continuously and closely with governments at all levels to ensure these are donated to places of greatest need” said Cook.
It’s good to know that the owners of the products we use (and rely on) every day are trying to give back to the community and slow the spread of the virus. The sooner we all work together, and accept that this is our new way of living for the time-being – the faster this will be over.
Polarity Technologies Ltd’s decision makers are doing everything they can to keep employees at a healthy distance and keep the organization running. We are extremely fortunate to be in the position we are and will continue on this path. Our sister companies, Spigot Inc. and Eightpoint Technologies, are STILL hiring – they are working from home too and they are setting up new employees with work stations to do the same.
