The shortage of medical masks is forcing Asian manufacturers - from automobile companies to Apple’s supplier - establish their own productions, writes Bloomberg. Sinopec, a Chinese energy company, said it has acquired the necessary equipment and is currently creating 11 production lines for the manufacture of masks.

Taiwanese Foxconn, which assembles Apple gadgets, began producing masks as early as February 5, primarily to supply 1 million of its employees. By the end of the month, the company plans to establish a daily production of 2 million masks.

Starting from February 17, Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer BYD is planning to produce up to 5 million masks and launch production of up to 50,000 packs of disinfectant per day by the end of the month. BYD will deliver the first shipments to drivers of public transport, taxis, employees of airports and airlines, as well as volunteers, a company spokesman said.

SAIC-GM-Wuling, a subsidiary of General Motors in China, said it had prepared 14 production lines capable of producing 1.7 million masks per day. The company released its first batch on last Sunday. Meanwhile, truck manufacturer Shaanxi Automobile Group launched the production of safety glasses and intends to produce more than 3,000 pieces a day.
