The online profiteering going on is ridiculous. Not just on ebay where you'd expect it, but I've seen some companies selling boxes of 10, which medical stores normally seem to sell for around £35-40, for over £200. :shock:

Just seen this on my facebook feed, a genuinely helpful idea, from US somewhere:
"I know so many people made homemade fabric masks to donate to frontline teams but unfortunately many are unable to wear them at work since they are not protective. Well, we have a way you can help! We are running out of head pieces that cover our hair. We are allowed to wear fabric coverings like the one pictured below at the hospital. This awesome RN added a button on both sides for her mask so that her ears were covered! If there is anyone out there who can make something similar and would like to donate them to my incredible team fighting this fight each and every day please reach out! We will be proud to sport them and so grateful for the extra protection."
This should be the pic that went with it:
