Congressional Inquiry into sale of N95 masks

Begin a congressional probe while facts, witnesses, and records are still available

Why is this important?

Health care and other essential service workers have become sick and some may die over the lack of preparedness, even though these masks were changing hands and flying back and forth between countries since January of 2020

So we are supposedly now cleaning the N95 masks. But here is a list of the "risks" from Batelle's own memo:
Potential risks include:
• Failure of filtration efficiency
• Reduced breathability
• Strap failure and ineffective face-fit
• Reused respirators may not have been effectively
decontaminated of SARS-CoV-2 or other pathogens

If Gardner is investigating ventilators, why not add N95 masks to the inquiry?

Gardner Calls for Investigation into Ventilator Stockpile
Senator demands answers after reports that thousands of ventilators are not operational
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) is calling for an investigation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) into reports that thousands of ventilators in the Strategic National Stockpile are not operational, contributing to a low supply of ventilators around the nation during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.

So just to add to the surreal nature of this crisis. I mention in the outline below that our legislators knew of this in a November briefing. Here is the link to the Emergency Declaration made in January, certainly in enough time to secure masks.
