There is a noticeable lack of facemasks at the hospitals in the Southern and Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst). Now the organization is asking for help from dentists, among others.

“This is challenging and has the highest priority,” said Cathrine Lofthus, director of Helse Sør-Øst, at a press conference on Thursday.

“We are now turning to dentists and others for help,” she says.

A number of hospitals have already announced that they must ration contamination equipment such as facemasks, gloves and Antibac.

  1. Disposable masks are going to be used up.

    It is vital that masks and goggles *are* able to be cleaned and re-used.

    I don’t have goggles, but I launder my homemade pillow case mask with bleach after every use … which is not often, since I am trying to isolate myself as much as possible.
