(ČIA) The Pirate Party polled 212 Czech sellers and manufacturers of face masks and other protective equipment with a question about their cooperation with representatives of ministries or self-governing bodies. From a sample of 75 responses that arrived, the survey found that 90% of companies were not contacted by the ministries at all. In many cases, the ministry did not even respond to calls for cooperation. If communication with Czech manufacturers did take place, it was often very late and orders were minimal. Only seven companies received at least one order (approximately 9%). Some contracts have also been cancelled.
