China cashes in off coronavirus, selling Spain $467 million in supplies, some of them substandard

3/26/2020

As the novel coronavirus continues its diabolical trek around the world, some countries are finding themselves in a difficult situation. Low on supplies or money, traditional American allies like Spain, Italy, France and Japan have had to turn to China for help.

Japan have had to turn to China for help. "China creates the poison and sells the solution to it," foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang told Fox News. China has used its money, medical equipment and teams of doctors and nurses in a high-stakes campaign to show the world that while the United States scrambles to contain the novel coronavirus within its borders, China is busy moving in on some of America's closest allies. "Never let a good crisis go to waste," Dimitar Bechev, a senior fellow in the Atlantic Council's Eurasia Center, wrote . "There is no better illustration that the medical supplies and crews of doctors China has been supplying to Italy and other European countries battling COVID-19. Beijing does carry a large share of the blame for the global pandemic... but now it seeks to shape the narrative of the crisis unfolding before our eyes." DOCTORS IN DISTRESS, QUARANTINE SEND SOS FOR MORE PROTECTIVE GEAR, TESTS: 'IT'S A COMPLETE MESS' China has also been floating the idea that it has donated all of the medical supplies out of concern for the world. That's not the case, Chang said. "A lot of the stuff that China claims has been donated has not been donated," he said. "It's been sold." While China has come through for several countries but, in some, it has fallen short of expectations. In Spain, for example, Health Minister Salvador Illa announced Wednesday that the country had bought $467 million in medical supplies from China, including 950 ventilators, 5.5 million testing kits, 11 million gloves and more than half a billion protective face masks. Soon after receiving the supplies, the Spanish government announced plans to return 9,000 "quick result" test kits to China, El Pais reported , because they were deemed substandard, specifically the sensibility of the test was around 30 percent, when it should be higher than 80 percent. China admitted that the kits they sold to Spain were bought from Bioeasy, a Chinese company not licensed to make them. The time and money Spain wasted on faulty supplies could have devastating effects on a country that is now in its second week of a national lockdown after cases of COVID-19 spiked. CORONAVIRUS IN THE US: A STATE BY STATE BREAKDOWN Spain now has at least 49,515 confirmed coronavirus cases, according to its Ministry of Health. Of that number, 8,000 people were confirmed to have the virus in the past 24 hours. Nearly 27,000 people remain hospitalized as Spain scrambles to contain the virus. In Italy, Beijing sent more than 300 Chinese intensive-care doctors to help the country, which has the second-highest number of COVID-19 cases behind China. As of Thursday, Italy has 74,386 cases of the coronavirus compared to China's 81,782 cases. Read more: Fox News

Bottom line. can deflect all they want for realDonaldTrump they want. The Bottom line is Trump and the Romper Squad knew of this Pandemic, chose to say it was under control, while doing nothing but inside trade to profit from it. Ha ha ha- China should of gave Spain the supplies for free it’s because Chinas leader told people to hide the SARS CoV 2

China has a motive for sending this virus worldwide let's see what happens.

It took a month to develop the virus gene serial number and release it to the world! The epidemic was brought under control in 2 months! Look what the US government has done! Dirtbag China! TrumpVirus is Trump's Legacy. Sold them medical supplies and only 30% of the test kits work. What does that tell us?
