PPE update - Monday, Nov. 30, 2020

To recap B.C.’s cumulative totals from March to last week’s report on Nov. 23, the following personal protective equipment (PPE) has arrived in B.C.:

  • Just over 7.7 million N95 or equivalent respirators
  • Almost 130.7 million surgical or procedure masks
  • Almost 2.9 million pieces of eye protection, including goggles and face shields
  • Almost 235.4 million pairs of gloves
  • Just over 15 million gowns

Many of the items listed above and other supplies and equipment that have recently arrived are in the testing process to make sure the products meet or exceed safety requirements before being used in B.C.’s health-care system.

Over the last week (since the update last week until yesterday), the following PPE has arrived in B.C.:

  • 30,586 N95 or equivalent respirators
  • 1,863,700 surgical or procedure masks
  • 8,782 pieces of eye protection
  • 21,448,030 pairs of gloves
  • 1,963,780 gowns

These numbers do not yet include the deliveries that arrived at Vancouver International Airport, as these items are still being processed into inventory. This includes:

  • 43.2 million pairs of gloves
  • 105,540 gowns
  • 24 million procedure masks
  • 21,600 procedure masks with visors

B.C. continues to source and test PPE. It is working hard to pursue any and all credible leads for safe and effective products for its health-care system.
