China cheats Spain after latter spends USD 467 million on COVID-19 kits

Spain has been one of the biggest COVID-19 hotspots in the world. More people have died in Spain than in China. Only the US is worse off.

Earlier this week, the European country spent 432 million euros (USD 467 million) to buy 550 million masks, 5.5 million rapid test kits, 950 respirators and more from China. Guess what, even after spending this much, Spain has received lakhs of test kits of substandard quality from China.

"With more than 4,000 coronavirus-related deaths, microbiology experts in Spain say the rapid tests they purchased from China are correctly identifying people with the virus only 30 percent of the time," says a report published by Business Insider.

As many as 6,40,000 testing kits are not working properly, reports say.

After screwing up the world by allowing the spread of the novel coronavirus, China is delivering a double whammy by supplying substandard products. What a shame!
