Now, during his speech this Thursday in the debate of the State of State Budgets of the State (PGE) of 2022 in the Plenary of Senate, Montero has ratified the promise he launched months ago, when he declared that the current decree would be extended to ensure The reduced price of the masks during the time it lasts its mandatory use.
For this, the Government requested the European Commission (EC) to extend the Exemption from VAT to the purchase of healthcare material against COVID-19, such as masks, by hospitals and public entities.
Thus, the masks will not be the only sanitary product that will be affected by this ad.

Other health products to fight against coronavirus have not run the same fate as the antigen tests, of which a strong prominence during this Christmas is expected, whose price will continue without being regulated.Date Of Update: 09 December 2021, 08:05
