COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina National Guard delivered the latest shipment of critical medical protective equipment that will go to those on the front lines fighting in the war against the coranvirus.
The gear comes from the Strategic National Stockpile. It's the second such deliver to the state. DHEC inventoried the materials, and the S.C. National Guard distributed the face shields, surgical masks, gowns and gloves to every county in the state Friday.
It included the following material:
44,440 N95 respirators
105,550 Face masks/surgical masks
20,160 Face shields
16,422 Surgical gowns
South Carolina's health agency, DHEC, said distribution of materials was data driven to ensure needs are fairly met based on county populations based on the 2010 Census and emergent needs.
