Hungary has taken delivery of 10.7 million masks in the past 24 hours, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Wednesday.
Doctors and nurses need a sufficient quantity and quality of special protective equipment, Szijjártó noted.
Over an “air bridge” between China and Hungary, the country has received several tens of millions of items of special protective gear, he added.
As well as the delivery of masks on three aircraft over the past day, Hungary has also received 900 litres of disinfectant and 24,600 protective gowns for doctors and nurses, he said.
Over the next few days, five more air deliveries from China are expected on Thursday,
he said, adding that these aircraft are already waiting to be loaded on the tarmac of Chinese airports.
