China To Waive Tariffs On US Medical Imports Amid Virus Outbreak

Beijing, (HRNW)  China: China will waive trade-war tariffs on imports of selected US medical equipment from March 2, the government said Tuesday, as the country battles to contain the new coronavirus epidemic.
More than 72,000 people have been infected by the outbreak of the new COVID-19 strain in China, which has claimed the lives of over 1,800 people.

Products that will qualify for the exemptions include patient monitors, blood transfusion equipment and instruments to measure blood pressure, according to a list released by the Tariff Commission of the State Council.

The commission said the move was “to better meet the growing needs of Chinese consumers” and that it would accept applications from firms in China.
