10,000 disposable masks were donated by the Chinese province of Haynan to the Plovdiv region, and today the Regional Crisis Headquarters distributed some of them to health facilities.

We remind you that in October 2018 Zdravko Dimitrov, Regional Governor of Plovdiv region at that time, signed an agreement to establish twinning relations with the Republic of China, Haynan Province.
