Business is slow thanks to coronavirus. So here is Some Coronavirus related business.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Most of my busineses in the kow have slowed down drastically due to this virus, some due to demand issues and some due to general disruption.

So as they say if life gives you lemons make lemonade, plus I am getting a bit bored just sending emails from my sofa.

So I am willing to open up some useful resources for anyone interested, possibly without being too greedy given the situation.

Mostly the target markets are EU/USA but anywhere is fine.

I have ability to supply 500.000 (3 ply) medical masks (CE and FDA approved) a day from a reliable factory in China. Minimum 100k orders.

I have the availability to supply favipiravir antiviral medicine to any buyer directly from the factory.
Any amount is ok for this. The same factory supplies the ministry of health here.

Full body non woven protective gowns are also available. 5000minimum order.

N95 masks can also be sourced but pricing is really bad now with the USA buying up everything they can.

I could be interested in further resources for ffp3 masks or N95 as well as hydrocloroquine in large volumes.

For more details you can drop me a pm.

And if you have some more Coronavirus related business ideas I would be happy to discuss them.

All the best.
Stay with sending emails from your sofa.

Hey OP, why dont you tell your murderous PRC CCP Masters that they owe the world money, so those masks are free. Tell your Masters too that us Americans are pissed off and have finally decided that they are never going to play nice like they said they would when we let them into the world back 20 plus years ago and its time for a change. Tell them that we hope they can afford to run their economy on selling 50 cent flip flops to Cambodia because everything else is going to be made somewhere else. I suggest you start setting up alternative suppliers. Outside the murderous workers paradise.

With respect Jack, this kind of opportunism turns my gut.
"Wartime profiteering" comes to mind.
I have no problem with someone making a living with new biz opportunities presented by this situation, but trying to make a buck trading in lifesaving necessities when they are in such short supply is beyond the pale, IMO.

This virus crisis has thrown up many example of how unrestrained, dog eat dog, market capitalism has failed us so badly. Very very badly.

FFS, after three decades of the free-marketeers preaching the benefits of market efficient globalisation, the West is in such a pathetic place that it can not even gear-up to make face masks.
Not even now, after months, can we put a piece of fabric and two lengths of elastic together - when our lives depend on it.

FFS! Let's hope some things change during this crisis. Including changed attitudes about greed. ^^^

Personally what turn my guts is that in many countries doctors are going to work without proper protective equipment while there are factories able to supply the necessary equipment yet thanks to a ridiculously convoluted procurement processes it takes them forever to get anything done.

If they would just let hospitals purchase what they need I could get masks to those doctors in 4 days.

Yet while everyone is still crying about how there aren't enough masks not understanding that in times of high demand it's a first come first served market. So while burocrats drown distributors, hospitals and pharmacies in paperwork people die.
Also factories get filled with orders before the paperwork it's done so they will need to repeat the paperwork once more even if they finally get around the burocracy.

That's a great defence of capitalism, until you spelt burocrats and burocracy wrong. That really turns my guts...

If masks are in short supply but can still be found, where can one obtain supplies of this Dettol disinfectant.

I wouldn't count on it. To those who have the goods made, money rules all. If the American people gave a shit, they would have supported their own country all along.

Again, sadly, I wouldn't count on it. All that the aggressive people care about is money and greed, and the general public doesn't care enough to stop them, or even just stop supporting them.
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...
