  • 3M’s Production and Distribution of the N95 MaskAssignmentThis Short Response Activity focuses on the recent global shortage of N95 face masks, needed by doctors and healthcare professionals to protect themselves and their patients from the novel coronavirus. First, carefully view the eight videos posted in Moodle above the assignment (the total running time is approximately 50 minutes). Then, carefully read the two recent news reports about 3M’s problems with the production and distribution of the N95 mask.Next, in the first paragraph of your response, briefly summarize 3M’s recent role in the production and distribution of the N95 face mask (approximately 150 words). Include important information and details from the videos and articles that best capture the challenges that 3M faces. You may reference videos and articles simply by using the names and numbers used to identify them in Moodle (ex. ‘Video 1,’ ‘Video 2,’ ‘Article 1,’ etc.).Then, in your second paragraph, evaluate how equitably and effectively 3M’s masks are being distributed to healthcare professionals both in and outside of the US (simply present your own opinion or viewpoint). Then, present a short recommendation: what could national governments, state governments, and corporations do to create a more efficient and equitable distribution of this scarce piece of medical equipment? This paragraph should run approximately 350 words.The whole response should run approximately 500 words (give or take). The professor does not expect you to become an expert on the response topic; simply view the background videos and read the two articles to get a general sense of the issue.
