China has exported over 50 billion individual face masks since March, as the world continues to struggle against the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Data released by China’s General Administration of Customs (GAC) indicates that during the period from 1 March to 16 May China exported disease-prevention goods worth a 134.4 billion yuan (approx. USD$18.92 billion), including 50.9 billion face masks.

Aside from face masks during the same period China also exported:

  • 216 million protective garments,
  • 81.03 million goggles,
  • 162 million novel coronavirus testing kits,
  • 72,700 ventilators (including 63,900 non-invasive ventilators),
  • 177,000 patient monitors,
  • 26.43 million infrared thermometers,
  • 1.04 billion surgical gloves.

Since the start of April the average daily value of exports of disease-prevention goods has risen from 1 billion yuan to 3.5 billion yuan.

Chief export markets for these goods include the US, Germany, Japan, France and Italy.
