PLASTICS Comment on Coronavirus Outbreak

February 28, 2020

Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) President & CEO Tony Radoszewski:

“As new coronavirus cases are confirmed around the globe and the disease poses a growing threat to public health, the plastics industry is continually working with its partners throughout the supply chain to ensure that needs are met, patients get the care they need and medical professionals are protected as they provide that care. Plastics have been the material of choice in the medical field for decades, and we live healthier, longer and better because of these materials. The global plastics industry stands ready to assist authorities and public health advocates in making sure our materials and products are on the frontline of combating the spread of the coronavirus.”
