China has launched emergency coordination of mask production to meet the growing demand for masks due to the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) spread, said the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

Under a working mechanism of major infectious diseases control, the ministry is working with local authorities to coordinate local mask manufacturers to speed up production in all provincial regions.

Meanwhile, the MIIT urged local departments to investigate emergency supplies for the purpose of epidemic prevention and control, in order to ensure the production and supply.

The ministry had also started the work of ensuring production and supply of medicine inventory and materials needed for disease prevention and control since Monday.
