Schwerin (dpa / mv) - The distribution of six free FFP2 masks to every household in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania continues.

Four million masks have already been distributed, said Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) on Tuesday in Schwerin.

According to Schwesig, around 30 percent of households are still missing in the Hanseatic city and the Rostock district.

The Prime Minister announced a few weeks ago that 5.2 million FFP2 masks would be distributed to the population.

The action was originally supposed to be completed a few days ago, but had been delayed due to the onset of winter.
