Under instruction from mother China, Chinese businesses and Chinese people based on Australia systematically raided masks, hand sanitizer, hazmat suits and various other important items in Jan and Feb, leaving us with little...now they are the good guys? Chinese communist party needs to be held responsible. World should unite in our reckoning of China.

It's great to see sports doing what our government won't. I wish they didn't feel the need to do it.

Can’t stand China however gotta give them evil props here. Knowing about the Hacky Chan the buy up as many masks as possible before it goes worldwide. Then sell them back look good (to many) and make a dime or too while at it

Most EU countries have found the Chinese masks defective, why are you giving them hard cash for masks that will get people killed. Btw china is doing this on purpose. Are we supposed to be grateful to the patriots for defective masks? Buy from almost anywhere else, China was to infect people with thier virus. There is no saying " sorry we didn't know" later the reports are very visible.. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-52092395 Coronavirus: Countries reject Chinese-made equipment European governments have rejected Chinese-made equipment designed to combat the coronavirus outbreak. Thousands of testing kits and medical masks are below standard or defective, according to authorities in Spain, Turkey and the Netherlands

Thank you, now load them all into a giant truck and take them to the nearest landfill. The last thing we want is to give contaminated Chinese masks to our healthcare workers.
