San Francisco Mayor, at a press conference, claimed that personal protection equipment (PPE) orders for her city were being diverted to other states and foreign countries.
Mayor London Breed further said that cities were being pitted against each other as the PPEs were being given to the highest bidder.
Breed, questioning the federal government said, “We have the money to purchase the PPE, why can’t we purchase the PPE?”
She also mentioned that San Francisco has already bought 15 million units of PPE but is still short on adequately handling the pandemic.
The mayor also expressed criticism over the federal government’s management of the pandemic.
