While China runs aboslutely massive trade surpluses thanks to being nearly the sole exporter of masks, gloves, PPE and other medical and pandemic related equipment, China's currency, the Yuam, has been allowed to strengthen by the PBOC, China's Central Bank, to around 6.5 Chinese Yuan to the Dollar the last few months.
