Federal authorities will assess the demand for exported materials within the country during the coronavirus epidemic.
US authorities will delay the export of key medical protection products until they decide whether to keep them in the country to fight the coronavirus. This was announced on Wednesday by two Federal agencies.
US customs and border protection will delay the export of respirators, surgical masks, and surgical gloves, the service, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency said in a joint statement. The second Agency will then decide whether to return these materials for use in the US, purchase by the US government, or export.
