In his separate tweets, Hammad Azhar said that the relevant ministries of the government are working to remove hurdles to scale up local production of Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs), hand sanitizers, and other medical equipment.

The minister said that we are working with the health division to identify bottlenecks that may exist in the form of over regulation or duplicity of procedures.

In this regard, he added that the Cabinet has decided to delist hand sanitizers from the purview of Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) and hand it over to Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) for quality standards enforcement.
