Row as Finland ‘disappointed’ over Chinese masks

Apr 09, 2020 20:17 IST

China's foreign ministry on Thursday said it would further verify reports that Chinese masks bought by Finland were unfit for hospital use. Bejing said the masks were bought through middlemen. China is supplying millions of masks and other desperately needed items to struggling governments, hoping to build political ties and defuse criticism that it allowed the disease to spread early on. The Finnish government said Wednesday that two million masks purchased from China were also unsuitable for use in hospitals, calling it a "disappointment".
