MANILA — A medical consumables manufacturer has assured the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) that there will be more supplies of N95 masks.

The DTI said the mother company of Medtecs International Corp. Ltd abroad will be supplying 400,000 pieces of FFP2-N95 masks that are set to arrive next week.

“The public should not worry as DTI is working to ensure the supply of reasonably-priced N95 face masks will be made available to the public to protect them from the ashfall generated by the Taal Volcano eruption,” DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez said.
