A large private company in Romania will produce 150,000 medical masks per day starting next week, and will increase the production to 500,000 masks per day beginning mid-April, economy minister Virgil Popescu said on Thursday, March 26.
According to the minister, this company is to eventually reach a production of 16-17 million masks a month, local News.ro reported.
“Even before entering the Government meeting, I spoke with probably the first large private company to start the production of masks. Starting next week, once it’s installed at the end of this week, the first automatic mask production line will produce 150,000 masks a day, meaning it will reach around 4 million masks a month, and from April 15 it will produce 500,000 FFP2 masks and 100,000 FFP3 masks per day. Basically, we will produce 16-17 million masks a month,” Virgil Popescu said at the beginning of the government meeting.
