France's Regional Health Agencies (ARS) recently launched an appeal asking companies to make donations of protective equipment to alleviate pressure on supplies in the health and social sector.

Nearly 10,000 items of protective equipment

With stocks available at its head office in Orléans as well as in other regions, BRGM has identified more than 4,000 masks that can be given to healthcare teams, including nearly 2,300 FFP2 masks. The equipment donated also includes hair nets, gloves, overalls and gowns as well as safety goggles.

Shipments are being sent to structures and hospitals that require supplies.
