Cyprus` Ministry of Health has announced that a fifth batch of medical consumables from China arrived in Cyprus on Thursday evening.

The cargo was on board an Aegean flight fuelled by Hellenic Petroleum.

“This flight was the fifth in a row offered by the two companies, contributing in this way in the Republic of Cyprus` efforts to secure sufficient equipment necessary to manage the coronavirus pandemic,” a Health Ministry press release says.

The fifth batch from China, it adds, includes high protection masks, swaps for collecting samples for testing, shoe covers, which will be distributed in the State Health Services Organisation`s hospitals according to their needs.

Part of the consumables which arrived constitutes a donation of the Embassy of China in Cyprus, the Ministry of Health says, expressing its “warmest thanks.”
