Some of COVID-19 tests China has been shipping to Europe are allegedly faulty

Microbiology experts in Spain have said that rapid coronavirus tests that the country bought from China are not consistently detecting positive cases. The error was discovered as Spain is in the grip of one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the world, second only to Italy in the number of reported deaths. Studies on the tests done in Spain found that they had only 30% sensitivity.

I hope that after this the world is seriously reconsidering their relations with this communist dictatorship. The are clearly responsible for millions of deaths and billions of financial damage and they continue to lie and try and screw us.

Hahaha. "Some" of the tests? A vast majority are complete garbage.

Why the heck does ANYONE trust anything about China at this point? After this mess is clear, force them into isolation with rocket boy.

Same title applies to all products from China. Diseases are the only thing out of China that actually work as advertised.

Did any of the major networks/newspapers cover this story? You know, the ones who have been praising China lately? I only see Fox and Yahoo, from Spanish news source, I believe. Just wondering...

Someone in China will be imprisoned over this issue, as the only reason they were sending the kits out in the first place was for some good pr. Yet, now China is known for sending faulty tests, and making everyone question if the tests they are using at home are just as poor.

The lessons to be learned — and I hope we have a global memory for once here — is that (a) China cannot be trusted, (b) we should not depend on China, and (c) we do not need China.

Same story came out yesterday in the Czech Republic. They got thousands of kits from China ($2m order), and only 20% are useable.

China is like the petulant, sneak child of the world given their history. From recalling medical equipment while lying about how serious the virus was to sending countries in the EU and Spain faulty equipment, so much so that they had to send it back (funny that china isn't having the same issues using the exact same products) to poaching Canadian research illegally (the prof who leaked the research is now going to do time) along with 16 tonnes of medical supplies. The Chinese government(Not the people) can't really be trusted, especially with the WHO holding water for them and peddling their propaganda.
