Comrades in charge of relevant departments of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: China is the world's largest mask manufacturing and exporting country, with annual output accounting for about 50% of the world's total. The maximum production capacity of masks in China is more than 20 million per day. As the epidemic spreads, the demand for masks has exploded. Many people in remote rural areas are now putting on masks. If everyone is using them, they have to replace them every day. In the face of such a strong demand, it is reasonable to fail to keep up with the supply in the short term. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is making every effort to overcome all kinds of difficulties and promote production companies to work overtime to restore production capacity. Through the efforts of this period, the output reached more than 8 million a day, and the resumption of production reached 40%, but it must be seen that it will take time to restore or even expand production capacity. In addition to domestic production, we are also promoting international procurement to meet the national epidemic prevention and control needs.
