California’s Controversial COVID-19 Mask Deal Reveals Exorbitant Costs

ANNI Medical Steps Forward to Offer A Cost-Effective Solution.

Following the canceled transaction with Blue Flame LLC, California subsequently entered into yet another controversial deal with Chinese electric car manufacturer BYD to secure approximately 300 million N95 masks for nearly $1 billion dollars.

Tokyo, Japan, May 12, 2020, As the COVID-19 Pandemic sweeps across the globe it has become clear that there is a growing shortage of Coronavirus face masks. This has caused Government Agencies to make sudden decisions to quickly get face masks in stock. Such rush moves can often be the target of unscrupulous manufacturers who will jump at the chance to take advantage of the situation. The result is price gouging as was apparent in the recent California COVID-19 Face Mask deal with a firm out of China.

Opportunity to Explore

The one-month delay in the certification process for BYD’s N95 masks gives California the opportunity to explore other avenues.

ANNI Medical is ready to provide masks, expertise and compassion amounting to better ROI for Californians.

During a recent interview, a Spokesperson from ANNI Medical, a subsidiary of ANNI K.K, a company that works closely with UNICEF Japan, said the company would supply 300 million N95 masks to California at a discount of $50 million.

ANNI Medical would donate another $40 million to 20 charities like Amalgamated Foundation Families and Workers Fund, Desert Healthcare District and Foundation, the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, the COVID-19 Angel Fund and would donate another $12.5 million to support families in California that have lost members to the coronavirus.

ANNI Medical is in it for the long haul.

Creating Jobs for the American People

In addition to the donations, Anni Medical would invest $30 million to set up a factory domestically to manufacture N95 and other protective masks. California and the United States will no longer have to depend on overseas manufacturers, and jobs will be created for American people.

ANNI K.K. provided emergency supplies for UNICEF Japan during the March 11, 2011 earthquake and continues to partner with UNICEF Japan to save and protect the world’s most vulnerable children. Anni Medical will bring the same level of commitment to help those individuals and organizations that desperately need resources available through this program.

Partnering with Companies

Purchasing masks to curb the COVID-19 infection rate is only half the battle. The country still faces a host of problems. Moving forward, government officials will need to take notice of the opportunities that yield the best return for California taxpayers, local charities, and the families impacted by the pandemic.

Partnering with companies like ANNI Medical that have philanthropic goals and a track record of delivering supplies during an emergency would provide California and other states a significant return on their investments that goes beyond simply purchasing masks.

With over $132 million at stake, California may want to reconsider its current deal.
