China sends Mexico face masks, Covid-19 test kits.

Two Chinese foundations, those of Jack Ma and Alibaba, sent to Mexico overnight 100,000 face masks and 50,000 Covid-19 tests kits. The medical supplies arrived this morning at Mexico City airport.

Two questions follow: 1) Who gets first crack at these urgently needed items, and
2) How do you say in Mandarin "Thanks. Please send more?"

As of Mar. 31, Mexican authorities were reporting just over 1200 confirmed cases of Covid-19, and 29 deaths nationwide. The highest numbers come out of Mexico City. But the fastest rate of growth of reported cases of coronavirus is in the state of Quintana Roo (Cancun and area).

given those masks & medical supplies are probably part of the shipment sent to China by the US back in early February.:wtf:

But I can understand any reluctance to do so, as our totally corrupt, useless and uncaring administration deserves nothing of the kind...

The Netherlands has recalled 600,000 defective masks they delivered to their hospitals sent by China . Same thing fSpain, and the Czech Republic. I believe Canada has begun a process of examining ones received from China for possible defects

In Canada the masks in question were just thin paper.
We sent 18 tons of medical material to China at the start.
We would like it back now.

Forgot to mention the test kits could end up as money for someone.
I have family in Mexico City and to get a test was 107.00 usd
Perhaps that is the reason there has been only 10,000 tests.
