A pillow manufacturing company whose CEO is a prominent Trump supporter said Tuesday it is making protective face masks for hospitals across the country amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

The products are not for sale to the general public, MyPillow said.

Officials across the country, especially in states hit hardest by the coronavirus, have warned that hospital supplies, including personal protective equipment, are depleting as the virus rapidly spreads. 

Private companies and groups, from fashion designer Christian Siriano to Pornhub, have offered to create and donate masks to hospitals and first responders in need of the critical supplies.

There are more than 458,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases globally and 62,000 cases in the U.S., according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
