Chetana Belagere ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU: As soon as a case from Bengaluru was added to the list of Indians affected by COVID-19, people rushed to buy surgical and N95 masks, besides hand sanitisers.
We have not procured masks from China.
Rajesh Mohan, managing director of Shan Surgicals and Co, a company that deals with surgical masks and N95 masks, said that availability will be low if the government doesn’t procure more masks.
Now, the retail price is Rs 28-Rs 30 for a normal mask and Rs 250 to Rs 800 for an N95 mask,” he said.
The central government has procured around 3lakh masks, but these might not be sufficient, claim pharma companies.
