Gaming peripherals company Razer has now pledged one million surgical masks in order to combat the ongoing coronavirus outspread.

The announcement came from the company’s CEO Min-Liang Tan via Twitter, where he talked about social responsibility: “All of us have a part to play and we should be doing whatever we can with the situation getting more serious,” he says. “Lets support each other in these trying times. The team at Razer is stepping up to do what we can.” In contribution, Razer will be converting some of their production lines to manufacture surgical masks, at least one million of which will then be donated to various government and hospital authorities to meet global shortages. Tan also says this is only “the first step of many” that his company is taking as they are “committed to contributing our extra time, resources, effort and talent toward the fight against COVID-19.”

The news comes after other global companies have also shifted their own production lines to help fight the coronavirus, including LVMH, which is using its perfume and cosmetics factories to produce hand sanitizer for French authorities and hospitals.

In other coronavirus-related news, GameStop insists it’s an “essential retail service” and so will remain open despite the pandemic.
