Ventilators delivered to Czechia via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism

Following Thursday’s announcement by President von der Leyen, the EU has sent 30 ventilators from the rescEU medical reserve to Czechia. This support comes on top of 620,000 masks and 50,000 protective gowns already delivered from the rescEU reserve, as well as in-kind assistance provided to 22 countries in need via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
