Coronavirus: Protective Masks to be Distributed to Budapest Social Workers

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.03.24.

 The metropolitan council will distribute 35,000 protective masks to social workers and make parking free-of-change for Budapest hospital staff, Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony said on Monday.

In a video message on Facebook, Karácsony said he had written a letter to hospital directors asking them to specify which health workers should get free parking in order to help them carry out their duties.

He also said that efforts are being made to provide more protective equipment for the capital and districts.
