Pakistan has bagged export orders worth $100 million for its domestically manufactured personal protective equipment, informed Fawad Chaudhry, the Minister for science and technology of the country.
Many countries are interested in Pakistani equipment, and the figure could top $500 million in the coming months.
Now the country is producing masks including N95 masks, gloves, goggles or face shields, gowns, shoes cover and bed sheets for their hospitals, said Fawad Chaudhry.
Pakistan also developed a coronavirus diagnostic kit, which has been approved by the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan, he added
We are importing the kits from China at the moment but when the commercial production of our kits begins, we will not have to import,” Chaudhry said
The kits developed by our experts are better than the imported kits, and have over 90% accuracy.
