In a teleconference between President Trump and state governors, President Trump said the federal government is not the ordering clerk of the states. This means the Federal Government is helpless due to supply shortages. Though President Trump said many private sectors are stepping up, they need equipment and setup time. In Virginia, many firefighters and EMT technicians are already infected with the coronavirus and cannot respond to calls for help. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam openly called citizens to donate N95 masks and other protective wears to local hospitals. When doctors and nurses are infected, hospitals become useless. Italy already called medical students to step up to the need as many doctors and nurses are already infected. In response to this national and statewide emergency, the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans of Virginia (CAPAVA) is organizing a public donation drive so that we can order masks and donate them to hospitals. CAPAVA members already contacted factories in China to make purchases directly. N95 masks are selling at 5-6 yuan each in China, more for shipping and customs. The larger is the quantity of order, the cheaper per unit price will be. Please donate as much as you can to help our doctors and nurses to fight this pandemic. CAPAVA is a non-profit organization and we will issue donation receipts to each donor who provides us full contact information.
