The coronavirus pandemic has shown some wonderful sides of humanity, but it has also reminded us of how selfish some people can be. Take, for example, the Brooklyn man who was recently arrested after authorities discovered he was hoarding medical supplies.


According to the New York Post, not only was the man selling these important supplies at exorbitant prices, but he also spat on FBI agents when confronted about it. The man claims to be infected with coronavirus.

Man Says He Has Coronaviris, Coughs On FBI Agents

The man in question, 43-year-old Baruch Feldheim, is accused of price-gouging N95 respirator masks, having allegedly sold 1,000 masks to a doctor for $12,000. That’s a 700 percent markup.

Another doctor told investigators that Feldheim was hoarding enough supplies “to outfit an entire hospital.” That also included Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer. Last week, he allegedly received a shipment of about eight pallets of face masks.

After staking out his house on Sunday, FBI agents confronted Feldheim from a safe distance. When they were within four or five feet, he reportedly coughed in their direction and told them he had coronavirus.

Feldheim was arrested for assault and making false statements. Police later raided a warehouse in New Jersey where Feldheim was suspected to be stashing 80,000 masks.


Hospitals Around The U.S. Are In Need Of Supplies

While some people hoard important items and seek to profit from the current crisis, many hospitals around the United States are in need of supplies to keep medical workers safe and provide necessary care to patients.

Thankfully, plenty of people around the country are going out of their way to help. Fashion designer Christian Siriano and his team are making face masks, and they recently shipped 1,500 of them to New York health care workers.

Former President Barack Obama shared the story of a 7-year-old Virginia boy named Zohaib Begg, who is collecting shower caps, face masks, and gloves from hotels in his area to donate to a local hospital where he had a tumor removed at 4 years old.
