N95 masks for healthcare workers

Just got news that both my daughter Raquel, and her husband Ramiro (now hospitalized) who is a man from Guerrero with Resident status in the US, BOTH have Positive test results for Covid-19, and also have pneumonia.
They reside in Ohio, along with 3 grand kids, one of which was born here in Z.

This has really hit home. :-|

Sorry to hear that the virus has struck so close to home. We're wondering what similar news we'll hear, if and when we ever get back to Zihua, where so many of our friends and acquaintances are in the age group most at risk.

Since I'm in one of those high-risk groups I would appreciate it very much if anyone who might have to provide health care services for me has the right mask instead of civilians buying them all up leaving the health care providers without enough. Actual health care before fear, please. This whole affair is about trying to provide better health care for everyone who needs it, not just those infected with this virus. This is all about that most Christian principle of all: Love thy neighbor. Maybe selflessness is asking too much and we can't all actually put the needs of others before our own, but how about at least on the same level.
