The USA is well-known as the hardest-hit country by the ongoing COVID pandemic. The new Omicron variant that spreads like wildfire is causing a rampant surge in infections like none other. According to information brought by worldometers.info, the USA is reporting an average of 800,000 COVID cases per day.

Under these circumstances, there’s no wonder why the authorities from the USA are offering some huge benefits when it comes to what a person may need during the COVID era. After free COVID tests had been made available for everyone, hundreds of millions of N95 masks will become available for free as well.

400 million N95 masks are available for free

According to CNN, the Biden Administration is a week away from giving 400 million N95 masks for free to the public, as a White House official revealed. Unsurprisingly, N95 masks are considered to offer the best protection against COVID.

An official said, as quoted by CNN:

To ensure broad access for all Americans, there will be three masks available per person. In addition to this program, thanks to the administration’s efforts, these high-quality masks are in ample supply and widely available to American consumers.

Joe Biden declared the following, as quoted by the same source:

I know we all wish that we could finally be done with wearing masks. I get it,

But there is a — they’re a really important tool to stop the spread, especially of the highly transmittable Omicron variant. So, please, please wear the mask.

The N95 masks will be available at local pharmacies as well as community health centers. The masks will be provided from the Strategic National Stockpile.

Companies around the world continue to impose COVID vaccinations on their workers. One of them is Apple, as the Cupertino-based giant is even demanding three COVID vaccine doses for its employees.
