California Governor Gavin Newsom said that the state has launched an official website to deal with the shortage of medical supplies and help combat rampant healthcare fraud amid the spread of COVID-19. The website would allow individuals and companies to donate, sell and offer to manufacture essential medical supplies including N95 masks and testing materials, which are badly needed by local hospitals, Xinhua news agency quoted Newsom as saying at a daily briefing on Saturday. The Governor disclosed that the state was working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on a number of fraud allegations involving medical supplies, saying some people, taking advantage of the shortage, claimed that they could deliver medical supplies that they don’t have. On Friday, local health care provider Kaiser Permanente said it had cooperated with federal law enforcement in investigating a failed deal for 39 million N95 masks. (IANS)
