To support China’s ongoing response to the outbreak, Canada has deployed approximately 16 tonnes of personal protective equipment, such as clothing, face shields, masks, goggles and gloves to the country since February 4, 2020. 

This equipment has been provided in collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross and the Red Cross Society of China.”
