On January 19, local time, the US government announced that it will distribute 400 million N95 masks to the public from next week.

The White House said the masks were from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Strategic National Emergency Medicines Stockpile Program.

The masks are collected at local pharmacies and community medical centers participating in the federal government's new crown vaccine program.

  The White House also stated that in order to ensure that more Americans receive masks, each person is limited to three.
