Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “FASTER, PLEASE: Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine asks for President Trump's help to get FDA approval for mask sterilization machine”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine announced that there’s an Ohio-based company called Battelle that’s invented a machine to sterilize up to 80,000 N95 masks per day which would allow medical professionals to use them up to 20 times:

The company has two machines in Ohio so far, but the FDA will only approve them for 10,000 masks per day, not 160,000:
