Chinese Covid test kits and N95 Masks prove faulty


 

Intentional and deliberate?

Turkey was the latest country to refuse Chinese coronavirus tests.
Spain returned their kits last week after finding them inaccurate.
The Chinese kits were only 30% accurate missing thousands of cases of the deadly virus.

Dutch officials have recalled 600,000 face masks manufactured in China because they did not meet quality standards, the government’s health ministry said on Saturday.

The news shocked frontline medical staff in the Netherlands, who rely on high-quality products to protect them from contracting Covid-19, Dutch public broadcaster NOS said.

Half of the shipment of 1.3 million supposedly top-of-the-line face masks – known as N95 in the United States and Hong Kong – had already been distributed to doctors and nurses treating the most critical Covid-19 patients, the government said.

Anyone around my blog knows how I feel about this bizarre response of Americans  to not having enough N95 Masks for the general population.

    If Joe Biden was president, he’d read your blog post and still order 1 million face masks from China so it shows we like the Chinese, to prevent “STIGMA” 🙂

    I might be mixing up my stories but didn’t Trump take a bunch of crap for supposedly refusing masks not that long ago? Looks like maybe he knew something his critics didn’t.

    I don’t know about anyone else but I am fed up with Cuomo’s grandstanding over NY city and state hospitals being overwhelmed during this crisis while having no problem with NYC and NY state healthcare systems and schools along with all entitlement programs, and crowded prison and legal systems having been overwhelmed by illegals as a result of his sanctuary city and state policies.But being the leftist democrat politician that he is he has skillfully shifted the blame onto Trump and his virus while posing as the across the aisle guy. It may be safe to assume he will eventually replace Sleepy Joe as the democrats great white hope. One man’s opinion….

      I could add a few paragraphs detailing how Cuomo is a low, despicable creature in the same sense as Pelosi, Schumer, Clinton, and oh so many more, but it would simply be a repetition of what I’ve written before. The icing on the cake, however, is that none of these low creatures are ashamed of who they are, of what they represent. They all belong in the Soviet Union, not in America, and they are all so very proud of themselves. Gosh-awful people; rotten to the core.

        Cuomo and de Blasio while totally unprepared and with their pants down are doing their best to fool all of the people all of the time and some may say are succeeding with the invaluable help of, as Sean Hannity has called the media, MSDNC. These two commutes should be bowing at Trump’s altar for bailing them out.

    It could be that the Turks intentionally and deliberately declined the inferior products from China; however, if I continue this statement, it might be construed as defamitory. So I will stop.

    “Made in USA counts for something?” Not hardly. Bought a Delta faucet for my kitchen three months ago, in part because it proudly announced on the package that it was made in the USA. It is a complete piece of crap. Temperature control is tempramental, pull down nozzle does not dock properly, it did not shut off cleanly from the beginning and after three months does not shut off at all. I am having to replace which, thanks to the California governor, is not easy to do right now.

      Same opinion myself…. Seam sprang a leak…. still I want my meds home grown. Our cars were junk until Japan gave us a run for our money.. You always had to take a new car back for those “little things” and then some.

        I don’t care where anything is made. Having it “home grown” is very far from being a guarantee even of viability, let alone quality.

        Bill, couple years ago, I looked at a top 10 list of vehicles Made in USA for parts and labor. #1 was Ford’s F150, #10 was the Corvette. Everything else was a ‘foreign vehicle”. My 2012 Toyota Tundra was #4 on the list. They’re made in San Antonio. I will have to add though that I don’t think the quality is as good as it would have been if it was made and parts sourced in Japan. I had to replace light bulbs around 15,000 miles.

        Still I have to laugh at the people rolling along with a big 3 vehicle (that was made in China or of primarily Chinese parts) with a sign in the window declaring Buy American!. ha.

    Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between deliberate sabotage and accidents caused by incompetence.

    Still, we need to cut a number of ties. If they want to buy technology from us, fine — we just need to build trap doors into our technology preventing piracy.

      Right you are, Mark. I don’t have the particulars, of course, but I think it is a pretty good guess that when China and Japan began purchasing heavy equipment from Caterpillar and John Deere, an alarm bell might have gone off in the minds of highly placed government officials and corporate executives. What China and Japan did was take these vehicles back to their own countries and reverse engineer them. So now you have companies like Kubota in direct competition with Deere, selling illegal copies of American and British made goods to Americans at less cost. Toyota automobiles are almost an exact copy of Ford in terms of chassis, engine footprint, suspension, and braking system. With few exceptions, no one ever complained about this. Maybe corporate executives should have thought about this BEFORE selling their equipment to foreign entities.

      Well Bunk, if polls mean anything and considering FOX has Biden beating Trump by 8 points, then Americans may be incapable of learning anything.

    With the American left cheer leading in their corner and touting response to the Red-Chinese (haven’t seen or heard that term for quite awhile) murderous behavior as racist and xenophobic nothing will be done to punish them on any level. And once their man made crisis has past why wouldn’t we expect their factories to be humming away producing cheap goods for the west?

      The main problem we have with China is that they know us all too well. They surely know our politics; they know we are either corrupt or corruptible. They know that we are greedy, always looking for something at the lowest possible cost, and they know that we think low cost allows us to forgive defective production. That’s only the big picture, though. President Xi no more knows about what is going on inside Chinese factories than Trump knows what’s going on inside our factories (if there are any). I’ve known Asians for most of my adult life and I can say that if they ever get the idea that it is possible for them to gain an upper hand, in anything, no matter what, they’ll do it. I cannot say with any measure of certainty what is behind so many defective testing kits and masks. But even so, China has over so many years produced dangerous goods marketed to the US and other countries that the entire weight of it in a civil trial would bring in a finding of guilty, “as charged.”

      We Americans will wake up to this reality at some point. Our only recourse, though, will be to stop buying junk from China. I don’t know what most distributors of goods and retail stores would do without China as their main source of supply, though. Golly, maybe they’d begin buying American-made goods.

        On the other hand our Chinese friends are more than happy to buy our $2 T+ debt, which, even before factoring interest into the equation, will balloon to how many more trillions once congress gets its entitlement ducks in a row.

        Well, you beat me to it of course. These are my first thought. I was going to phrase it as China will come to regret this latest attack on the world, intentional or otherwise. Then the realization that they will only regret it if America or other countries step in and replace the Chinese goods with other options. I’d be willing to pay more to avoid Chinese goods and we already do in terms of pet food products (lots of pets have been killed by their products) But if you need something and the only source is a China product what ya gonna do?

        Will business slow at Wal-Mart? No – cheap is the word. But if it did, maybe Wally World execs would find a way to replace at least some of those China products.

        Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t “Made in Japan” at one time have such a stigma that many Americans avoided Japanese products or at least considered the stuff junk and put an effort and even $ into avoiding them? Maybe this latest assault from China will have some lasting value.

        Hey Kid,
        We dinosaurs remember well the stigma surrounding Japan’s products in the early 60’s but we loved their pocket transistor radios which we kids became addicted to. It’s almost painful remembering how simple and innocent life was back then.

        It has been reported that about 10 percent of drugs coming out of China don’t meet standards…. of course our government allows a 30 percent efficacy rating in drugs…. more or less… 30 percent. Just think about it… There was a company on Fox that tests these drugs and made the report.

        Peter, I look back at life in 1960, and although very Naive then, I can still see the huge slide down by the American culture between then and now. Guys back then just simply wouldn’t not have put up with what seems to be accepted if not even embraced today. I think you know what that means.
