#6 Federal contracting records show HHS made a $4.8 million order of N95 masks on March 12, followed by a $173 million order on March 21, but those contracts don’t require the manufacturer to start making deliveries to the national stockpile until the end of April, after the White House has projected the pandemic will reach its peak.

Because the money-grubbing contractors should have been forced to produce them in a week. Besides, the deadly pandemic was forecast to run well into the summer at the time of the order. At worst, they'll restock the national stockpile.
