India has prohibited export of all ventilators, disposable surgical masks and specific textile raw material for masks and coveralls. This could raise the availability of personal protective gear for healthcare professionals in the country fighting the COVID-19 epidemic.

“The export of all ventilators, surgical/disposable (2/3 ply) masks and textile raw material for masks and coverall only falling under the ITCHS Codes specified against each has been prohibited, with immediate effect,” according to the notification issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) last evening.

Earlier this year, the government had placed a ban on the export of all surgical masks soon after the novel coronavirus had started spreading in China and beyond, but lifted the ban in February. The ban on the industrial purpose N-95 masks, supposed to give substantial protection against the virus, was, however, retained.
