In the aftermaths of a somewhat controlled number of cases, the government of Canada has announced partial relaxation in the export of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Coveralls which were initially banned due to rising COVID-19 cases in the country. The commodity was previously forbidden from export, but it has now been reclassified as “restricted’, requiring exporters to obtain a government license before shipping. Although the move is in response to demands from local personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturers who assured the government of surplus amount, they want the government to ease the restrictions even further and increased the limited quota cap.
