The week in pictures

In response to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, wine estate Acumen Napa Valley has donated 12,000 N95 respirator masks to the people of Wuhan, in the Hubei Province of China, which is the epicenter of virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that health workers who interact with coronavirus patients wear the masks.

The masks where shipped to China on Saturday, February 8th. Once the masks arrive in Wuhan, which is the home of Acumen’s founder, Eric Yuan, they will be delivered to the Wuhan Tongji Hospital.

In addition, Acumen will donate 50% of the proceeds from February’s online wine sales, and those purchased at the Acumen Wine Gallery in downtown Napa, will fund the purchase of more N95 masks, and protective medical coveralls, which will be send straight to Wuhan.

“As a community that has benefitted from the generosity of so many people in dealing with the fires and floods that have impacted wine country in recent years, we believe that it is imperative to support our brothers and sisters in Wuhan during this terrible time,” Diana Schweiger, Acumen’s sales and marketing director, said.

“Because of our founder Eric Yuan’s deep roots in Wuhan, we are in a unique position to quickly provide these masks to some of the people who need them most urgently. Our hope is that by aiding the brave people on the front line of this epidemic, we can save lives and help stop its spread.”
