I've had a look and cannot find any info.

Roughly 2 x A330's daily to PEK.

If medical cargo it seems a massive uplift exercise for a 4.6M population.

Prior to COVID, approx 200k masks were used a day by the HSE, that is now over 1.2 million. The HSE signed another contract with a South Korean company yesterday for supply of 120 million masks, which will also need to be airlifted. An extra 1 billion has been requested by the HSE per year just for PPE.
