    The 2nd smog red-alert in Beijing this month is said to be causing a run on filtration masks and air purifiers.

    The sale of face masks on online retailer JD.com through the first week of December is four times what it saw through the whole of October.

    Analysis is suggesting 4 out of every 5 masks being sold in China right now are being sold in the northern parts of the country.

    Staffers at Walmart locations are scrambling to try to keep enough masks on the shelves.

    "The number of consumers buying face masks is rising. This week alone, our face mask sales have doubled compared to the previous week."

    Home appliance giant Suning says its sales of air purifiers though this past week has increased 13-fold, while sales at their brick-and-mortar outlets for air purifiers have shot up 6-fold.
