The US Army began to sew medical masks on their own

Against the background of the spread of the disease with the new coronavirus and the lack of personal protective equipment, the US Army independently began to manufacture medical masks. This was reported in a press release by the US Department of Defense.


Reportedly, the production of medical masks for everyday needs and protection against coronavirus was launched by servicemen of the support battalion of the 1st special forces group of the US Army. The production is deployed at the joint Lewis-McCord base in Washington State, where parachute repairs are being carried out. Sewing machines used for sewing parachutes were converted for the manufacture of medical masks.

The Pentagon press service explained that the experts developed prototypes of reusable respiratory masks printed on 3D printers of protective screens / face shields and surgical masks for the Madigan Army Medical Center and its regional partners.

Aerial Delivery Platoon platoon at the initial stage will be able to produce 200 masks (per day - approx.) With five light sewing machines

- said the commander of the battalion, Lt. Col. Christopher S. Jones, adding that the pace of production is increasing and will soon reach 1000 - 1500 medical masks per working week.

          When I studied at school, we were taught in civil defense lessons to sew protective masks for evaluation:
          1) lightweight - only on the nose and mouth;
          and 2) on the whole face - on the mouth, nose and eyes with the forehead - with two layers of flannel inside. Transparent glasses were inserted into the eye openings of the mask.

          I have been keeping these masks for a very long time in memory of the school.

        I don’t know how long ago it turned out that we have a small supply of masks and gloves at home. Do not even assume what else mom has in stocks. Any thoughts are on improving one-time masks ..... recourse

        and what’s wrong with that? with all the desire, not even an example of the states, it is impossible to provide for themselves in such a situation. no. if only a couple of years before the virus knew what it would be and set up production in the country that would be stupid in droves to sew these masks, then of course. but the virus will end and what to do with this production?

          What about China? Indeed, as an example, you need to choose the best samples!
          Before the pandemic, China produced 1,5 million masks a day, and now 1 billion masks a day. There are no problems with masks in China. The Chinese doctors - even more so. And now China is supplying masks to the whole world, making good money on it.

          Yes, and my question is not modest - why did Putin give out masks (and ventilation devices) to the whole world when we ourselves lack? What does he think our population does not need to be cleaned? Our hero himself, in case of danger, puts on a yellow spacesuit!

            What is the example of China? You didn’t think for what reason banned the export of masks from Russia to China in the winter? I will answer you with an example that I know personally, they bought masks from us wherever they could. but not even that. China is a factory. with a population of 1.5 billion people. Of course he can sheathe the whole world. but we are not China. we do not have such a resource.

              Even for China, the whole world needs to supply masks in the right volumes; an impossible task for one person a day requires at least 5 disposable masks.

              oh yes do not write nonsense though. these are ordinary gestures. by the amount of a drop in the sea what is for them what is for us. at least a little reasonable people should understand this perfectly.

                  all your trouble is that you really don’t understand what you’re talking about. for anyone, at least a little normal state, gestures and help is the usual and right thing. everything is known in trouble.

                    I sincerely wish that you, Dmitry, especially your close ones, DO NOT get into a situation that you need urgent ventilation, but you did not have enough ventilation devices. Although I’m sure, then you would probably change your opinion.

                      I trust my abilities and know that everything will be fine. if something goes wrong I will tell you about it. and we talked about masks. as for mechanical ventilation, I have enough statements from the Ministry of Health. “Today we know how many ventilation devices are in operation in each subject and what is the deficit. The government involved all manufacturers, primarily domestic ones. Today, we assess the situation as stable and completely covering today's need, ”the press service of the Ministry of Health quoted Vladimir Uyba, Deputy Minister of Health. He noted that by the end of May, more than 8 additional ventilation devices will be delivered to hospitals.
                      I have no reason to believe that this is not so. you have ?

                        Everyone here knows the price of the statements of the Ministry of Health. At the moment, it may be enough, and if the coronavirus takes the form, as in Italy or the USA, then not only ventilation machines, there will not be enough beds. By the way, they are already missing.
                        Now in Russian hospitals one ventilator is in 30 patients, more than half of these devices are quite old. With coronavirus, if you rely on American statistics, every fourth hospitalized person needs it.

    Masks to sew are not very effective. They are produced on aet. Lines with the help of soldering. You won’t do much manually.

      Masks to sew are not very effective.

    My wife, too, yesterday all day sewed masks and today carried on duty. At the first-aid post, they received overdue wide bandages and were puzzled to sew nurses and orderlies. Of the health workers, many saw for the first time protective suits only now on TV, they have not been available for a long time since the days of the USSR. Shame ...

      The idea, yours, is tempting, but not viable ...

      They will sew you yes ... So they sew that later, as with hemorrhoids: "Neither to look by ourselves, nor to show others" ...

      I read somewhere, I will not specifically search, that a conventional surgical mask reduces the likelihood of infection from a virus by 2.8 times. When used correctly. Proper use includes washing or disinfecting hands after removing the mask. In any case, there are a lot of cases of Covid-19 patients without obvious signs, and if everyone is wearing a mask, then when coughing or sneezing, drops do not fall on objects and surfaces surrounding a person. The first days of infection you do not know whether you are contagious or not.
      Another mask reduces the likelihood of touching hands with an infection on the face. How many times do you involuntarily touch your nose on the street, somehow count.
      I wish you good health. hi

        It is precisely that, under certain rules of wearing a mask, you will not protect yourself from infection, but perhaps reduce the likelihood of infection. And as they correctly said, it should be worn by sick people, not healthy ones. That they would reduce the likelihood of infection of people around. And people are stupid what Chinese "beautiful rags" wear with valves. It doesn’t even help with dust.

        Here the problem is different, it is not the forehead that needs to be measured, but the wrist, it is covered by clothes and the surface and temperature of the skin surface are closer to the truth. No wonder we put a thermometer in our armpits or in our mouths, well, sometimes in our anus. But they know about it, so if you show 36,6, then in fact the temperature is elevated. A pyrometer is simply faster than shoving each thermometer "in the ass")))

    We were taught in the first grade to make gauze dressings, and almost earlier than to read, on the one hand - it was the USSR, which was preparing for hand-to-hand fights with the Americans almost at the epicenter of a nuclear explosion, but on the other, nobody canceled emergency situations . Recall the same summer of 2010, and that terrible could over Moscow, and all of Russia. Then, too, on a subconscious level, clicked memories from the lessons of life safety about the need to close windows and cracks. But I didn’t advance further along the party line, I still had to go and go before the “pioneer” (in the sense that in the 90s I had already scored school lessons, drill, etc.).

      Every 2 hours is if you are sick. Coughing, runny nose.
      Or a doctor / nurse in a hospital.
      And if for prevention, so as not to get infected from the breath of others, then
      just boil or iron once a day.

    Yes, and my question is not modest - why did Putin give out masks (and ventilation devices) to the whole world when we ourselves lack? What does he think our population does not need to be cleaned? Our hero himself, in case of danger, puts on a yellow spacesuit!

    Well, actually, he didn’t give out that much, if only someone would help. The most terrible feeling is the helplessness of whoever understood.
    And of course, Putin’s image in the world is almost Hitler’s, so why not solve advertising problems, two in one?

    The situation in the USA is even worse than described ... they don’t have their own mask production - they don’t have any, the builders were taken away by respirators and transferred to hospitals ... now they have a wave that everyone should be masked, although they said a week ago that in the mask only for medical staff and patients.
    Many people write that China produces a lot of masks, and you ask, what percentage of them are certified for honey. workers - no more than 10% - everything else is self-made without certification. Many countries Italy and Spain have already returned this "homemade" to China back.
    The largest stocks of masks in many US states were destroyed that year due to budget savings, as 5-8 million dollars in each state went into storage per year.
    As for medicine - things in the USA are very bad, everything was set up to pump dough from the people, infectious boxes to the middle hospital - 3 PLACES, IVL - 10. As before, they didn’t let out infectious disease specialists for 10 years, doctors of the highest category (surgeons) simply leave at their own expense and they don’t want to treat sick (ordinary citizens) with a caronovirus.

    Every 2 hours is if you are sick. Coughing, runny nose.
    Or a doctor / nurse in a hospital.
    And if for prevention, so as not to get infected from the breath of others, then
    just boil or iron once a day.

    That bandage, which in the photo is a maximum of 3 hours, then it just becomes wet from breathing and needs to be thrown into an insulated container.
    About boiling and ironing - in Ukraine people have already tried everything - only gauze can withstand a maximum of 3 times boiling and ironing ... the rest is from the evil one.

    Masks sew everything and everywhere.



    They may not be the best protective agent in the world, but better than nothing.

    Will it still be when they put into operation heavy, impact sewing machines.

    that the pace of production is increasing and will soon reach 1000 - 1500 medical masks per working week

    Like little children ...
    The Pentagon had to ask the Russian Federation to send to the United States an operational group of Russian managers led by Serdyukov and his ladies from ROSOBORONEXPORT ... the work would boil in a week ...

    What do they have, OZK and gas masks?
    I always suspected that a chemist was cheating on us at the ZOMP classes. That is, it is possible to fight in the OZK and gas mask under the conditions of the use of SDYAV and bacteriological weapons, but only masks are saved from COVID. Well then we did not run in masks ?!

    My wife, too, yesterday all day sewed masks and today carried on duty. At the first-aid post, they received overdue wide bandages and were puzzled to sew nurses and orderlies. Of the health workers, many saw for the first time protective suits only now on TV, they have not been available for a long time since the days of the USSR. Shame ...

    Don't sound those lol
