The government in Pakistan has exempted import of 61 diagnostic support and personal protective equipment (PPEs) from all duties and taxes for a period of three months in order to reduce the rising prices in the domestic market.
 
The government has also allowed the use of non-utilised amount of the World Bank-funded projects worth $40 million for purchase of COVID-19 equipment.
 
The decision was much awaited with a spike in coronavirus cases in Pakistan and shortages in supply of these items, especially PPEs, in the local market.
