Amazon distributing medical supplies to help during COVID-19 pandemic

Coronavirus

U.S. — The public cannot buy n95 masks on Amazon because the online shop is limiting sales of the masks and other key medical supplies to hospitals and government organizations.

The company has also eliminated referral fees so it does not make a profit when distributing these supplies.

Amazon says it changed its policy to ensure scarce medical supplies are available for hospitals.

The ban includes masks, face shields and surgical gowns.
