洛杉矶,6月8日(新华社)——加州州长加文·纽森办公室周一表示,中国新能源汽车制造商比亚迪公司将在未来几天向美国加利福尼亚州运送1.5亿个N95口罩,用于分发给一线医护人员。


据加州州长办公室的一份声明称,在比亚迪生产的1.1亿只医用口罩已被分发给加州,以帮助该州各部门安全恢复生产后,新一批N95口罩即将上市。


Newsom宣布,总部位于加州的比亚迪北美公司已经获得了美国国家职业安全和健康研究所(NIOSH)的认证,可以为该州生产N95口罩。


N95口罩比宽松的外科口罩能更好地保护医务人员免受冠状病毒感染。自COVID-19在美国爆发以来,加州和美国其他许多州都面临着医疗用品短缺的问题,包括N95口罩和外科口罩。


加州州长办公室的紧急服务了NIOSH认证的N95口罩一个明确的要求与比亚迪这样的合同加州的医生、护士和其他一线工人可以相信他们收到的N95口罩从国家是最高的质量和满足联邦卫生和安全标准。


“为加州的一线医护人员和应对人员提供他们需要的防护设备是我们应对COVID-19的一个关键部分。新供应的N95口罩,以及合同中已经提供的医用口罩,改变了游戏规则,对我们州的公共安全和重新开放战略起着至关重要的作用。”


根据比亚迪的声明,按照合同规定,认证已经拿到,比亚迪将生产1.5亿只N95口罩并运往该州,分发给医护人员和卫生官员认定需要口罩的人员。


作为合同的一部分,第一批N95口罩预计将在未来几天到达。这份合同将确保国家未来有足够的口罩供应。”


Newsom的办公室指出,加州政府与比亚迪签订的合同是国家环保总局更广泛努力的一部分,目的是优先采购和分发关键的个人防护设备和其他紧急资产和商品,以保护公众健康和安全。


该办公室表示,加州与比亚迪的协议“已经生产了超过1.1亿个医用口罩,几乎每天都有更多口罩进入市场”。


这个美国人口最多的州已经向社会各部门的救援人员分发了比亚迪医用口罩,其中农业用口罩616.8万只,教育用口罩257.8万只,零售用口罩323.8万只,非紧急医疗用口罩351.6万只,公共卫生用口罩869.6万只。


美国约翰霍普金斯大学(Johns Hopkins University)系统科学与工程中心(Center for Systems Science and Engineering)的数据显示,截至周一晚间,加州报告了133,560例病例,其中4,657人死亡。加州是冠状病毒大流行中受影响最严重的州之一。

 

LOS ANGELES, June 8 (Xinhua) -- China's new energy vehicle manufacturer BYD Company will begin shipping 150 million N95 masks to the U.S. state of California in the coming days for distribution to front-line medics, Governor Gavin Newsom's office said Monday.

The new batch of N95 masks is coming after 110 million surgical masks from BYD have already been distributed to help sectors in California reopen safely, according to a statement from the governor's office.

Newsom announced that California-based BYD North America has received certification from the U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to produce N95 respirators for the state, the statement said.

N95 masks can provide medical workers with better protection than loose-fitting surgical masks from coronavirus infection. California and many other U.S. states have faced a shortage of medical supplies, including N95 masks and surgical masks, since COVID-19 broke out in the country.

California Governor's Office of Emergency Services had made NIOSH certification of N95 masks an explicit requirement of the contract with BYD so that California's doctors, nurses and other front-line workers can be confident that the N95 masks they receive from the state are of the highest quality and meet federal health and safety standards.

"Providing California's front-line health care workers and responders the protective equipment they need is a critical part of our response to COVID-19. This new supply of N95 masks, as well as the surgical masks this contract has already provided, are game-changing and play a crucial role in our state's public safety and reopening strategy," said Newsom.

With the certification now in hand, as outlined in the contract, BYD will produce and ship 150 million N95 masks to the state for distribution to health care workers and those identified by health officials as requiring respirator-style masks, according to the statement.

"The first shipment of N95 masks produced as part of this contract are expected to arrive in the coming days. The contract will ensure that the state has a sufficient supply of masks going forward should there be need for them in the future," said the statement.

Newsom's office noted that California's contract with BYD is part of a wider effort by the state administration to prioritize the procurement and dispersal of critical personal protective equipment and other emergency assets and commodities to protect public health and safety.

California's agreement with BYD "has yielded more than 110 million surgical masks with more coming in nearly every day," the office said.

The most populous U.S. state has distributed BYD surgical masks to aid workers across sectors of society, including 6,168,000 for agriculture, 2,578,000 for education, 3,238,000 for retail, 3,516,000 for non-emergency medical and 8,696,000 for public health.

California, one of the hardest-hit U.S. states in the coronavirus pandemic, has reported 133,560 cases with 4,657 deaths as of Monday night, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
