India exported 23 lakh PPE in July

new Delhi. India has exported Personal Protection Equipment to 5 countries in July, these countries include USA, England, UAE, Senegal and Slovenia. The Ministry of Health informed about this today. According to the ministry, exports have picked up after the ban on export of PPE kits. This has helped the country establish itself in the PPE kit market.

According to the ministry, India has emerged as a force in the manufacture of many medical devices including PPE due to self-reliant India campaigns and initiatives like Make in India. In India itself, the central government is providing essential equipment like PPE kits, N95 masks, ventilators to states and union territories, states are procuring these from manufacturers at their levels as well. According to the ministry, between March and August, the Center has purchased 14 million PPE kits made in India. At the same time, 1.2 crore PPE kits have also been sent to the states and union territories.

At the beginning of the epidemic, there was a shortage of medical equipment, including PPE kits, worldwide. At the same time, the production of PPE kits in the country was also affected due to lack of raw material used in the equipment. According to the ministry, in spite of all this the country turned it into an opportunity and the country is now exporting these devices. Health, textiles, pharma ministry, DRDO and many other departments of the government worked together in this direction and the results were better. In July itself, the government approved the export of kits. The government said at the time that exports were being approved because of Corona's control and manufacturers' production capacity exceeding domestic requirements.
