At the beginning of 2020, China, a major manufacturing country, fell into a mask panic. In 2019, the total output of masks exceeded 5 billion, accounting for about half of global production capacity. However, when the New coronavirus hit, masks still became scarce materials. With the arrival of the resumption of production and the epidemic prevention and control situation, the demand for masks in the entire country and even the world is continually increasing. Where do masks come from? How can Chinese enterprises increase production and expand to ensure the supply of masks? Can the mask production capacity increase rapidly in the short term?
With the adjustment of production lines and the resumption of mask production enterprises, the supply of masks is being eased. On February 13, Xia Nong, a first-level inspector of the Industrial Development Department of the National Development and Reform Commission, introduced at the press conference of the Joint Defense and Joint Control Mechanism of the State Council that since February 2, China's mask output has increased day by day. As of February 11, the national mask capacity utilization rate has reached 94%; the first-line prevention and control of medical N95 masks, the capacity utilization rate has reached 128%.
The prevention and control of the epidemic is an overall battle. As relevant companies gradually resume work, the advantages of China's manufacturing power will gradually emerge. Regarding the spread of the global epidemic, our masks can not only meet the domestic needs, but also go abroad, to the world, and are the health guardians of the global people.
