The mayor discovers a “treasure” of 370,000 FFP2 masks

It was a gift dropped from the sky during the period of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. In the small commune of Lavelanet, in Ariège, the mayor of the commune had the happy surprise to discover 370,000 FFP2 masks in the basements of a warehouse bought by the city. As La hooly-news.com reports, it was last week that Marc Sanchez remembered that a building bought two years ago by the municipality contained a large stock of masks.

“When we started talking about a shortage, we remembered that there was medical equipment stored in the basement of the hangar since we had carried out an inventory of the premises in 2018”, confides the councilor to the regional daily . But the reality will go far beyond his expectations since it is therefore nearly 370,000 FFP2 masks that were found in the basements of the building. A real treasure in these times of scarcity.

The mayor contacted the gendarmes and firefighters to come and inspect the masks and they assured him that they were perfectly usable. “We checked the boxes and even if the masks had passed the date of use, the firefighters explained to us that they were completely compliant. In fact, the deadline corresponds to the lifespan of the elastics, not to the product itself “, explains the mayor of Lavelanet.

FFP2 masks will be donated to state services

The stock of masks still belonging to the Paul Boyé company, the mayor contacted the industrialist who immediately gave his authorization for the FFP2 to be given to the state services to help the nursing staff. FFP2 masks “are not only used in the medical sector”, according to a doctor. In reality, “these protective systems are perfectly suited to automotive painters or the asbestos removal sector. For the doctor,” it is very likely that there are still thousands of masks available
