Chinese suppliers have said they will replace the shoddy medical equipment they sent Canada in one of their "mask diplomacy" missions, according to Global News.

These Chinese companies originally sent a million defective masks and a sizeable amount of contaminated swabs. Fortunately enough, this will come as no extra cost to Canada.

The Trudeau government is spending a great deal of money attempting to get medical equipment from China to Canada.

Canada's medical stockpile, it turns out, had suffered from neglect and apathy—leading to a situation where we depend heavily on the Chinese.

Canada is now expecting to fly a plane to China and back every day so that our medical workers have the proper equipment. These flights will cost $600 to $800 thousand.

The original masks did not meet the standards required for the appropriate KN95 rating (a rating similar to the more recognizable N95 rating from the United States).

“Due to intense global competition for personal protective equipment and medical supplies, countries are engaging with a diverse number of new suppliers and manufacturers to meet the demands of the COVID-19 response effort. As a result, the agency is conducting its due diligence on products procured by [Public Service and Procurement], verifying the quality of procured and donated supplies upon receipt,” Eric Morrissette from Department of Health and Canada’s Public Health Agency told the Globe.

“To date, PHAC has identified approximately one million KN95 masks as non-compliant with specifications for health care settings. These items were not distributed to provinces and territories for front-line health care response." Morrissette continued.

Previously, Toronto had to recall more than 60,000 masks made in China due to easy tearing of the material. These masks were distributed to workers in long-term care homes. An investigation is underway to determine whether the faulty masks led to workers being exposed to coronavirus.
