Greece’s Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias visited the Chinese embassy in Athens on Wednesday where he was presented with 50,000 masks by the Chinese envoy Zhang Qiyue.
The masks were a donation from China for the needs of Greece's National Health System.
The Minister thanked the Ambassador, the Chinese government and the Chinese community for their contribution.
"This is a first small sample. On Saturday morning, a significantly bigger sample from the Chinese companies and the Chinese government will arrive with Air China's flight, which will arrive at Athens International Airport," Kikilias said.
