“Bethenny, there is talk right now of a second wave of coronavirus. You have been on the frontlines of this from the beginning, and helping so much through B Strong, and I’m wondering from where you sit, what is there a great need for in terms of donations? What are you looking at right now, through B Strong?” asked Andy Cohen

“I think prevention is really important, because people still aren’t doing exactly what they need to do, so it think prevention is going to be a big deal,” explained Bethenny. “And when it’s really crazy, people, especially in the medical community, and in the fire and police stations, they are using so many masks in a day. They have to be more careful than the average person who might reuse their masks. They have to reuse multiple masks which becomes a huge problem. If it becomes what it was before, we are prepared.”

“We have thousands of masks at a much reduced price. But last time, we did 20 million units of PPE, including a million hazmat suits to New York. So, we are ready,” she continued. “Schools are okay. Schools have equal distribution of PPE, but we’re thinking about schools more than anything, because it’s touch and go with how it’s going in schools. Some places have had cases, and TBD.”
