Two billion items of personal protective equipment (PPE) have now been delivered to the frontline since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak.

1. Almost 28 billion items have been ordered by the government to provide a continuous supply to health and care workers tackling coronavirus
2. Part of a herculean cross-government effort to future-proof supply chains
Two billion items of PPE have been delivered to NHS and social care staff across England since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, the government has announced today.

Amid unprecedented global pressures on supply chains, 341 million masks, 313 million aprons, 4 million gowns and 1.1 billion gloves have been delivered to frontline workers thanks to the efforts of government, NHS, industry and the armed forces to massively scale-up distribution networks.

Almost 28 billion items of PPE have been ordered overall from UK-based manufacturers and international partners to provide a continuous supply in the coming months.

This will help protect our hardworking NHS and care staff, allowing them to continue to save lives and provide high-quality care to those who need it.

This was a vital condition in order to safely ease the lockdown and start to bring some normality back to people’s lives.
