SZIJJÁRTÓ: MILLIONS OF HEALTH ACCESSORIES ARRIVE FROM CHINA IN TWO DAYS

 

Over the past two days, 595 ventilators, 4.2 million face masks and 2.9 million pairs of surgical gloves arrived in Hungary from China, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said. Concurrently with news reports about the easing of novel coronavirus restrictions in Western Europe, there have been rising concerns about the intensification of human contacts likely speeding up the spread of the virus again, Szijjártó said ahead of a cabinet meeting. There is a legitimate worry here, he said, adding that this in turn could boost pressure on health-care systems. “As a result, it is an ongoing task and obligation to keep the Hungarian health system prepared by continually making available the tools required for successful protection,” he said. The millions of accessories received on Tuesday and Wednesday will be used in Hungary’s health-care system, he added.
