Front-line medical workers' needs have been guaranteed, official says

China is able to serve front-line healthcare workers' urgent needs for medical masks to fight the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak, as the country's current manufacturing of masks is at 94 percent of capacity, the country's top economic regulator said on Thursday.

Under joint efforts to actively resume work and speed up production of medical protective equipment, China has witnessed a rapid growth in the production of masks day by day, Xia Nong, an official at the National Development and Reform Commission, said during a news conference in Beijing.

"Through the unified national allocation of medical resources, medical workers' needs for masks have been guaranteed," Xia said.
