To help curb the coronavirus outbreak, Razer is helping produce surgical masks

With the COVID-19 pandemic still spreading quickly, there have been a number of companies and individuals stepping up to help supply hospitals and other front-line virus fighters with scarce supplies.

Gaming peripheral company Razer is joining the fight against the virus and has shifted a number of its manufacturing lines from the production of its own products over to making surgical masks.

The announcement was made on social media by Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan.

In the announcement, Tan said Razer intends to donate up to 1 million masks to healthcare providers globally.

“While there has been incredible demand for our products during this time with many staying home to avoid the crowds (and to play games), the team at Razer understands that all of us have a part to play in fighting the virus — no matter which industry we come from,” Tan said in his announcement.

He went on to add that, “emergency conversion” of Razer’s manufacturing lines is the first step in the company’s plan. “We are committed to contributing our extra time, resources, effort and talent toward the fight against COVID-19.”
