March 27, 2020 / By Shawn M. Carter, FOXBusiness

Almost 40 million medical masks are waiting for U.S. hospitals in desperate need.

That’s thanks to the Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW), which said it located 39 million N95 masks, available for purchase, in the last five days and is now connecting health providers with the respective suppliers.

The union said it has no financial interest in the transactions.

“SEIU-UHW members and health care workers all over California are desperate for more protection, so we are seeking out supplies wherever we can get them,” SEIU-UHW President Dave Regan said in a statement sent to FOX Business, adding that they will “turn over every rock to find more equipment to make sure health care workers, who are heroically putting their own health on the line to care for patients, can do their jobs.”
