Missouri Sends More Medical Supplies To Area Hospitals

Local News Monday, March 30th, 2020

Help is on the way for area hospitals.

Governor Mike Parsons says numerous surgical masks, gloves, gowns, face shields and more are being sent to healthcare facilities starting today.

It’s part of the Personal Protective Equipment Program, which utilizes the Missouri Strategic National Stockpile warehouse…which has already shipped out more than 42,000 face shields and 5,000 gloves since last Tuesday.

While many hospitals are awaiting the shipments via mail, areas like St. Louis and Kansas City sent medical trucks to pick their items up over the weekend, as the number of cases of COIVD 19 continue to skyrocket in those communities.
