UAE starts mass production of N95 masks in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19


The government in UAE has started mass production of N95 masks as part of its effort to contain the spread of the new coronavirus.

The production of masks is being done in Strata’s Al Ain facility that can produce 30 million masks annually.

Mubadala Investment Company announced their collaboration with its subsidiary Strata Manufacturing and Honeywell to produce the said masks.

“We will be able to deliver critical support to frontliner healthcare workers and members of the wider community,” the company told Khaleej Times.

The country will be the first country in the region to manufacture and export its own N95 masks.
