BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- China's daily output of medical protective products skyrocketed from the beginning of the novel coronavirus outbreak, said Wang Jiangping, vice minister of industry and information technology.

The output of protective clothing has increased to 500,000 pieces per day from less than 20,000 pieces, Wang said.

Meanwhile, about 1.6 million N95-rated medical masks were produced to ensure medical staff at the forefront of the battle against the epidemic are well-equipped, while the daily output of regular masks reached 100 million units, according to Wang.

With the efforts of work resumption, production of other supplies and medical equipment has also seen robust growth, said Wang. Enditem
