Cargo flight to bring back from China medical equipment

The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works is preparing to send a charter flight to China in the following days to bring back home medical equipment and consumables which the government services require in handling the coronavirus outbreak.

YiannisKarousos, Minister of Transport, Communications and Works told CNA the decision was taken on Thursday and each ministry and the House of Representatives are preparing a list of necessities.
