and Vietnam to the United States. The paper uses monthly data on knitted and non-knitted

apparel goods at disaggregate levels from January 2020   to April 2021.The findings

show that Covid-19 adversely affected exports of apparel goods from these countries to the

US especially during the March 2020-May 2020 period. It is evident that the performance of

Vietnam in apparel exports has been better compared to China and Bangladesh.
