Organizations all over the world are trying to find ways to contribute to the medical effort against the novel coronavirus.

One of the most serious issues facing medical professionals right now is a dire lack of protective materials.
Due to the highly contagious nature of the novel coronavirus, medical masks are one of the most important things that doctors and nurses need.
Luckily, it looks like the Heat are doing what they can when it comes to making sure that the men and women at the frontlines of this pandemic are staying safe.
The creation of masks is not the first time the Heat have made their priorities clear during the ongoing crisis. Late last month, the team announced a $200,000 pledge to help provide 100 million meals in response to COVID-19.
Clearly, the organization is committed to helping those within its community. It’s an incredible testament to just how important the Heat are to South Florida even when they are not on the court winning ball games.
