In the morning podcast This will be the news we will update you on the most important news of today and discuss the news of the day.

To protect our healthcare personnel against the coronavirus, mouth masks are required. Due to the high number of patients, however, this stock is running out. To counter this, many parties donate their supplies of face masks.

A group that goes a step further are entrepreneurs from West Friesland. They started the action last week: Donate a mouth mask. By donating money, they ensure that mouth masks come from China in order to reduce the shortage.

This weekend, the first batch of 100,000 face masks has varied in the Netherlands and will be distributed to hospitals this week. Because the campaign is such a success, a new load of 300,000 pieces has already been ordered.

We will discuss this operation with spokesperson Sun Walenkamp .
