CEO of Razer, Min-Liang Tan has announced that the company has shifted the focus for some of its manufacturing lines from producing gaming products to surgical mask instead. The move was made to help fight the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Up of 1 million of these surgical masks will then be donated to authorities throughout the world. For starters, Razer has made the call to the Singaporean authorities as Singapore is the regional headquarters for Southeast Asia.
Over the past few days, our designers and engineers have been working 24-hour shifts to convert some of our existing manufacturing lines to produce surgical masks so that we can donate them to countries around the world.

Other Razer global and regional offices across the global have also been asked to reach out to the authorities in their respective countries. Min-Liang Tan also pointed out that this is just the first action from Razer to help fight against the pandemic with more to come soon.
For the meantime, please do you best to adhere the instructions given by the authorities under the on-going Restricted Movement Order. So, stay home and stay safe.
