Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó announced on his Facebook page that 1,365,000 masks were onboard the shipment.

He added that six more planes are waiting for permission to take off from Beijing and Shanghai. Szijjártó stressed that care for medical workers has to be provided continuously, even during the holidays, therefore the air bridge between China and Hungary cannot be closed at any circumstances.
