Actions speak louder than words: EU Commission delivers 1.5 million masks to support EU health workers

A batch of 1.5 million masks, the first of more to come has been delivered to 17 EU Member States and the United Kingdom to protect healthcare workers against COVID-19.

In addition, 1.5 million masks will be delivered weekly over the coming six weeks.

This project is part of a new EU Commission funded purchase of 10 million masks via the Emergency Support Instrument to provide direct support to Member States to mitigate the immediate consequences of the pandemic and support recovery.
