China promised to send top quality N-95 masks to Pakistan. When the consignment landed, Pakistanis found that China had sent masks made of underwear.

This is an alleged story. It is not verified. So take it with a grain of salt. But it fits the larger pattern of the People’s Republic of China sending defective test kits and worthless masks, whether as aid or as sales. Even as the Chinese Communists conspire to corner the market on coronavirus supplies, their factories are quickly turning massive profits by pumping out garbage. Because of the high demand for coronavirus products, ChiCom factories are able to demand full payment before delivery.
And what’s being delivered? In this case, allegedly, underwear masks.
China has not even spared its ‘all-weather ally’ Pakistan. Promising to provide testing kits and top-quality N95 masks to Pakistan in a bid to help the country that has been crippled by the lethal coronavirus outbreak, Beijing actually duped its ‘friend’ by sending in masks made out of underwears.
Reporting the news, a local Pakistani news channel said, “China ne chuna laga diya” (China conned us) and further notified that the Sindh provincial government sent the masks to hospitals without checking.
“In the name of to-quality N95 masks, China has sent in masks made out of underwear.”
These would presumably have been surgical masks. With global retail markets slowing down, an enterprising factory might have decided to take some of its badly made underwear and turn it into even worse masks.
