Hungary has taken delivery of a donation of protective visors and hand sanitizers from Turkey.

According to MTI, Turkish businesses donated 50,000 visors, 16,000 hand sanitizers and 20,000 hand sanitizers with high alcohol content to Hungary. The supplies were handed over by Saut Karakus, deputy head of the Turkish-Hungarian chapter of Turkey’s Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK).

State Secretary Levente Magyar said most of the help Hungary had received during the novel coronavirus pandemic had come from the East, adding that nearly all Turkic countries had provided assistance.

Ahmet Akif Oktay, Turkey’s ambassador to Hungary, said: “By implementing effective measures, Turkey and Hungary have managed to keep the death toll and the damage from the pandemic low.”
