OTT-ONE donates thousands of protective masks to Hungarian medical universities

In view of the extraordinary epidemic situation, OTT-ONE Plc. donated thousands of protective masks to, among others, the four medical universities of Hungary. With the respiratory protective masks ordered from its own resources, OTT-ONE intends to contribute to the protection against coronavirus during the pandemic. 

OTT-ONE has recently donated thousands of high-quality, European-certified protective masks to Hungarian medical universities, such as Semmelweis University in Budapest, the University of Debrecen, the University of Szeged, the University of Pécs, as well as the Bács-Kiskun County Municipality.

Moreover, the listed company has handed over hundreds of protective masks not only to the above-mentioned organizations, but also to employees and partners of the company in recent days.

OTT-ONE is one of the few companies that has a Chinese license to obtain the necessary equipment in China and to import those to Hungary. The aim of the company is to take part in the fight against the epidemic as much as possible and to support the institutions that work every day to stop the spread of the virus.

OTT-ONE is constantly working to contribute to the care and prevention processes with its network of contacts and a broad portfolio of services during the pandemic. In addition to protective masks, the company has recently committed to procuring hundreds of ventilators and related accessories, such as drug dispensers, monitoring equipment and breathing circuits, from China to serve orders from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the National Healthcare Services Center.
