Several textile companies from Prilep announced they will begin producing masks that are in short supply with the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Simple disposable masks were used massively over the winter because of the huge air pollution levels, but all reserves were snapped up with the onset of the epidemic and prices soared from 3-5 denars to 50-60 – if they can be found.

Figti, Stan and Kuli, three textile companies from Prilep, announced that they are beginning production immediately to cover the market needs.
