Engineers at Georgia Tech and in neighborhoods across Atlanta have been working around the clock to manufacture protective gear using lasers and 3D printers.
To help in the production, the Coca-Cola Company donated about 6,000 pounds of plastic sheeting this week. That plastic will soon be turned into more than 50,000 plastic surgical shields.

Those shields will then be donated to hospitals across Atlanta.

    Another encouraging business story:
    Nine Line Apparel making medical masks at cost during COVID-19 pandemic
    “They sent me 2,000 masks for free, I sent them out for free. They sent me tens of thousands of masks at 50 cents per mask, I'm selling them for 50 cents per mask,” he told FOX News. “I’m trying to broker these deals between the private sector and the government at zero cost because I want to return to making T-shirts. I do not want to be in the mask business.”
