Prime Minister Juri Ratas, who is in charge of the emergency situation and contacted the Sillamae-based certified producer of FFP3 masks, said that he is glad that such an important partner was found in Estonia.

"I am extremely grateful that the entrepreneurs were ready to immediately launch negotiations and are prepared to double their production to assist the state."

Ratas noted that the number of masks ordered from Esfil Tehno will substantially alleviate healthcare institutions' shortages.

"I would also like to thank all other entrepreneurs who have informed the state of their willingness to lend a hand," he said.
