Jõgeva furniture factory now produces face masks

With the coronavirus continuing to spread throughout the world, the demand for face masks is on the rise. Some countries like Germany have made it compulsory to wear face masks in public when visiting shops or travelling on public transport and the penalty for flauting the rules is a 150€ on the spot fine. There is growing frustration among consumers who attempt to buy masks only to discover they are sold out. An Estonian furniture company called Softcom is attempting to solve that problem by producing masks of their own. The company has invested in machinery from China and has the capacity to produce four million masks per month. This is great news for Estonian residents who no longer have to rely on foreign imports.

You can learn more about Softcom's mask production via their recent interview with ERR News.
