Intersurgical, a Lithuanian manufacturer and supplier of medical devices, will produce 1 million respirators for the country’s medical workers.

“Today, we have signed a contract, ordering 1 million masks-respirators for Lithuanian medics,” Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga said on Facebook on Friday.

The company will produce the respirators over a couple of months, after “rapidly” finding technical solutions, according to Veryga.

“The efficacy [of these masks] is high and can hardly be exceeded by the majority of existing respirators on the market. It will allow protecting our medics,” the minister said.

Sigitas Žvirblis, CEO of Intersurgical, told BNS that the demand for some of the company’s products had gone up several times due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Intersurgical exports around 99 percent of its products, but Žvirblis said the company is capable of satisfying the needs of Lithuanian patients and medics.
