National Energy Administration said that China has resumed 70 percent of its coal production capacity with output recovering steadily amid the fight against the novel coronavirus epidemic. NEA data showed that as of Monday, 1,274 mines across the country had resumed production, with daily output reaching 7.12 million tonnes, which passed the 7-million-tonne mark for the first time since February 1.

There has been a significant increase in the number of coal delivery trucks in some parts of the main coal-producing provinces of Inner Mongolia and Shaanxi, as transport restrictions gradually ease and more drivers are able to join the workforce.

China has pledged measures to ensure the supply of coal, electricity and natural gas to support the control of the novel coronavirus, aiming to ensure stable energy supply to severely affected areas including Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, and other major cities.

Coal mines are encouraged to resume production, while incentives will be given to support coal transport
