Pakistan to remove ban on export of COVID-19 safety equipment

Pakistan is looking to remove the ban on the export of COVID-19 personal protective equipment (PPE) this week. This will allow local manufacturers to export COVID-19 related material overseas. Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry took to Twitter to announce this. It was also announced that Pakistan has received a large number of orders for face masks from different parts of the world including the US, Canada, and Europe.

The government had approved the export of face masks across the world to earn foreign exchange for the country except for surgical and N95 masks.
