TAMUNING, Guam—DOCOMO PACIFIC, regional leader in innovation, telecommunications, and entertainment, donated 3,550 KN95 masks to Guam and CNMI front-liners during this ongoing outbreak of COVID-19.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, KN95 masks are considered the gold standard of respiratory masks as they filter out at least 95% of very small particles from the air. Since the quarantine began in March, these masks have been in high demand, causing shortages in supply. The donation list included:
• 1,770 to Guam Homeland Security
• 700 to St. Dominic’s Senior Care Home
• 700 to Catholic Social Services
• 180 to Kamalen Karidat
• 200 to CNMI first-responders
“We want to thank DOCOMO PACIFIC for their large donation of masks. The masks provided will be used to protect Guam’s front liners and first responders. We are grateful to have private partners like DOCOMO PACIFIC support us during emergencies and disasters,” said Office of Civil Defense administrator Charles V. Esteves.
