Temporary PPE export restrictions in the world

A growing number of countries around the world have placed temporary export restrictions on PPE, some of these countries being EU PPE import partners. The International Trade Centre reports that (as of 18 May 2020), outside the EU and the countries exempted from EU export restrictions, as many as 60 countries have officially imposed temporary export restrictions. Figure 1 shows the 43 countries with temporary export restrictions on PPE (orange), 6 countries with export restrictions on unspecified ‘medical supply’ that may cover PPE (yellow), and 11 countries with export restrictions on ‘other’ medical equipment and products such as food (grey). Of these 60 countries with export restrictions, 46 have imposed a fully fledged export prohibition.
