Tamás Menczer, State Secretary at the Foreign Ministry, has revealed that Panther 5 ventilators, “among the best in the world”, are being produced in Vác, in northern Hungary, in a factory producing 1,000 devices for use in Hungarian hospitals.

“All patients in Hungary will receive ventilators suited to their condition,” said Menczer, answering a question in parliament by Párbeszéd lawmaker Tímea Szabó.

The ventilators manufactured by Celitron in Vác will be deployed in intensive care units for everyday use, too. “Hungary has been strengthened by a strategic capacity which will make us better prepared for a potential second wave,” Menczer said.
