A new report says the Biden administration will go to the federal reserve to distribute millions of free N95 masks in the wake of the COVID-19 boom with Omicron.

According to Politico sources, the masks from the federal strategic national reserve will be distributed through pharmacies and other public places as per the plan to be announced on Wednesday.

Biden pointed to the plan at the Eisenhower Executive Office last week, telling reporters he plans to announce “how we provide high-quality masks to the American people for free.”

The president admitted he was tired of wearing the mask, but called it a “patriotic duty” to continue wearing the mask.

“Please wear a mask,” Biden said. “As I have said for the last two years, please wear a mask. I think that’s part of your patriotic duty. It’s not that convenient. Neck pain.

There are about 737 million N95 masks in stock.

The reported move comes days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its coronavirus guidelines to encourage N95s or KN95s to use “loose woven fabric” masks, the agency said. provided little protection.

The CDC said on Friday that the N95s, which provide the highest level of protection, were a priority for medical personnel in the face of a supply shortage, but that is no longer a concern.

There are 737 million N95 in reserve, and President Joe Biden plans to hold a press conference on Wednesday to explain efforts to make COVID tests and masks more affordable across the country, Politico reported. Much of the distribution is done through pharmacies, which must provide them free of charge, the store said.

At the beginning of the holiday season last year, the lack of administration testing was investigated as the incidence of coronavirus infections rose to record levels after the Omicron variant was first detected in the United States.

Cases of COVID-19 appear to be on the rise in New York State and elsewhere, but federal experts warn that the Omicron peak may not have come yet.
