Coronavirus – Self Quarantine, Government taking over factories, Face Mask shortage

Brandon Young joins us under Self Quarantine, Richard Ren live from China and mask seller Matt Silver joins Danny to discuss what is happening on the ground in China.


  • Brandon Young was in China for a couple of weeks, went to a showroom, visited her wife’s family in China and finalized work.
  • China issued a warning to all advising to cancel all social events.
  • Brandon decided to go to HK and stay in an apartment near the airport. Then flew back to the US.
  • However, the couple decided to self-quarantine for 14 days (incubation period for novel coronavirus), as precaution.

Face mask factory situation

  • There is a face mask shortage because of the following factors:
    • The Chinese government has taken over all disposable masks factory.
    • The price for PM2.5 material they use has gone up.
    • There is a shortage for this material and the factories will not be back on operation until February 10, 2020 due to government restrictions.
    • The Hubei province is the largest manufacturer for non-woven products, base materials for face masks.
  • Shipping challenges:
    • Shipping to China has become difficult due to the bans.
    • UPS employees have refused to go back to China
    • USPS, FedEx, UPS — avoid shipments by air. Try shipping by courier through HK (but this option will not be open for long)
    • Use shipping by sea.
    • NOTE: The virus does not survive long on packaging. By sea, is not that restricted.
    • Beware of used and repackaged face masks.

What more can be done?

  • We have a group of businessmen who have bought a large amount of face masks and sending it out.
  • Some sellers have their people in Philippines giving out face masks.
  • Japan, and South Korea are manufacturing, sending out support donating masks and medical protective suits to other countries.
  • Flu season will be over by May or June, hopefully the virus will be gone too by then like the other novel virus cases SARS and MERS.
  • Wash your hands, boost your immune system.
  • Check out other sources for products for the meantime, just in case.
