The Covid Pandemic Will Change Some Things Forever, but Manufacturing PPE in the U.S. is not One of Them.

According to the AP: “U.S.-based PPE manufacturers are calling it quits.

“At the start of the pandemic, a call was made for American-made personal protective equipment, and some $125 million in grants were awarded to spur production. But after facing logistical hurdles, regulatory rejections, staunch foreign competition and decreasing demand, many state-side companies have stopped manufacturing PPE. “
