"There is no fuss about the shortage of medical masks in Russia. We have sent 2 million masks to China in humanitarian aid", Manturov said during an appearance on Russia's Channel One.
According to his earlier statements, the output of masks in Russia totals 1.2 million daily with the potential of reaching 1.5 million should the need arise.
Last week, Russian Ambassador to China Andrey Denisov said that masks were among the items China had requested in aid from Russia, along with other deficit medical products, such as protective suits and goggles.
Masks have become an essential everyday item for the medical staff and residents in the affected areas, primarily the central Hubei province and its quarantined capital city of Wuhan.
With a confirmed human-to-human transmission, the virus has sickened over 42,700 and killed over 1,000 in China. As of Tuesday, the infection toll outside of China has reached 393 cases with one confirmed fatality.
