The New England Patriots appeared to answer the calls for help as Massachusetts became the latest state to struggle with supply shortages amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Patriots team owner Robert Kraft sent the organization’s private plane to China to pick up much-needed protective equipment for medical workers in the state, according to multiple reports. The plane is set to land at Logan Airport on Thursday and will be greeted by Gov. Charlie Baker, Politico reported.
Governor Baker figured out a way to buy 1.2 million N95 masks from China but needed a way to quickly get them here from China. Bob Craft has a airplane.
300,000 of the masks will be sent to New York.
