A few weeks ago we posted a story about local doctor, Khaled Diab MD, and his devotion to helping Life Tackled get more masks made. Today we share his triumphant return to the front lines to continue his battle against Covid. Reported by CBS 12.
Local doctor Khaled Diab, MD recently invested in Life Tackled Inc allowing us to procure further mask making supplies for the coming weeks.
"It's not enough, it's not nearly enough" responds Diab when asked about the recent airlifted supplies being brought to the US.
A doctor a the giant Memorial Regional in Hollywood, FL Diab contracted Covid-19 at an unknown point while treating a myriad of positive patients. He isn't angry. He accepts this is what comes with the job and is currently in self-isolation at home being treated every few days by a traveling paramedic who comes in full gear. Thankfully Diab's symptoms are mild and he is doing ok but that won't be the luck for everyone who contracts Covid-19.
"I'm investing because I believe in this company (Life Tackled) and their mission of making quality masks available to the public as well as medical facilities. This isn't a joke. I want to stress the importance of wearing a mask to prevent the transmission of this virus as well as following other CDC guidelines. I cannot stress that enough," states Diab via phone conversation.
The LT team is heeding his warnings by ramping up our filter production for our buyers as well as offering SILVADUR (an antimicrobial agent) moisture resistant masks with CoolMax to medical facilities for bulk purchase. Most important, and we can't stress this enough, please stay home and follow CDC guidelines so we can beat this disease. Lastly we thank the community for buying from us, your purchase allows multiple families on our team an income, allowing them to keep food on the table during this uncertain time.
