China to speed up import of medical goods

Chinese General Administration of Customs (GAC) revealed the country will accelerate the import of medical equipment, aiming to weaken the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The move will include speeding up the inspection process for green-lighting the merchandise, as well as simplifying quarantine approval for medical goods coming from abroad. According to GAC, the new measures are also set to help businesses continue with production.

It was reported earlier, the total nationwide death toll caused by the disease reached 1,600, with most deaths in the country's Hubei province.
