Got your respirator yet?


Hope you have $10,000 for one as that’s what they’re going for.

Prices for respirator masks are rising as public supply dwindles amid government warnings about the potential for widespread coronavirus in the U.S.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Tuesday that Coronavirus is expected to spread in America and that “disruption to everyday life might be severe,” according to Fox News. It seems the public has already taken this warning to heart, as many listings for respirators masks on Amazon, Ebay and other online retailers have sold out entirely.

Despite the fact that commonly available face masks are unlikely to prevent the spread of Coronavirus according to Business Insider, dozens of Amazon listings appear to have sold out and are listed as “currently unavailable,” at the time of publication. Even retailers like Optics Planet, which sells outdoor and shooting related gear, are struggling to meet consumer demand for masks.

Meanwhile, some aspiring disaster profiteers have taken to listing masks at exorbitant rates on Ebay. Prices for these upcharged masks range from $40 to $1,000 for common 3M brand masks that can usually be had for only a few dollars.

Despite the reality that masks will likely not stop a person from contracting Coronavirus, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar says the government needs to stockpile 300 million N95 respirators for use by health service workers, reports Business Insider. These are the same type of masks that are flying off the shelves and into the hands of the general public.

N95 is a designation for a respirator that filters 95% of small and large airborne particles when worn properly, according to the CDC.

    10 grand for a piece of cloth shit that don’t work? I got mine for under 8 bucks. It may not stop the Corona virus, but it pisses off the liberals at the supermarket.

    Bingo: Bright idea, I just flooded the internet with this message: :

    As you know a pandemic of biblical proportion is on the horizon and face mask manufacturers can’t keep up with the demand. So I’m appealing to all you patriotic ladies out there. Donate your unwashed used panties for the cause. Please send them to the address below and I’ll see they are put to good use.

    I’ll contact Jane Fonda-coques; Nazi Pelousy, Ilhan Omar, Rancid Labia, Hillary and others to help you out.

    Very thoughtful ANTZ. At my age my sense of taste and smell are kaput so any port in a storm.

    Any – and I mean ANY – flu virus that comes across any of the above named skanks used panties will either expire immediately in agony, or run, screaming in the opposite direction.

    Like I trust any public pronouncement from the CDC (gubberment bureaucracy) run by a Never Trumper, Deep State, TDS relative of the Emanuels (Rahm Emanuel – “never let a crisis go to waste”).

    10k for a fucking box of disposable dusk masks? I thought at first that it was an
    actual filter type respirator. There is a sucker born every minute. Those cheezy
    masks are a dime a dozen in the local 99 cent store. A guy could make a killing
    on this! I gotta check Amazon or eBay for actual respirators, to see how much
    money I can make by selling mine.

    Whoever wrote this story is pulling our dicks!

    The same 3M high-end valve type dust masks are going for 150 dollars a 10
    ten pack. El cheapo types can be had for a buck a pop. A full-blown cartridge-
    type respirator is going for 50 dollars, all from eBay.
