President Trump praised the Food and Drug Administration for approving a mask sanitation technology that can decontaminate respirator masks up to 20 times.
Speaking at the White House on Monday, Trump said he spoke with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, who asked for the president’s help with getting approval for the system, which is produced by Ohio-based nonprofit group Battelle.
“Each machine, now, can disinfect 120,000 masks per day. Now, think of that,” Trump said. “It’ll be just like a new one. It can go up to about 20 times for each mask. So, each mask can go through this process 20 times.”
