FUREY: Canada just gave 16 tonnes of medical supplies to China -- let’s hope they return the favour

 

One particularly troubling fact that Gill pointed out is that Canada very recently gave away 16 tonnes of medical equipment to China.

On Feb. 9, Global Affairs Canada announced that: “To support China’s ongoing response to the outbreak, Canada has deployed approximately 16 tonnes of personal protective equipment, such as clothing, face shields, masks, goggles and gloves to the country since February 4, 2020.”

Canada’s first case was identified on Jan. 25 and by the time we started shipping that equipment to China we already had 5 confirmed cases.

What were the feds thinking at the time? Did they believe that our contribution to China would help stop it from coming here? Did they anticipate China would use the masks, wash them off and then ship them back? Or were they not thinking at all?

Maybe, hopefully, we will learn that one good deed begets another. On Feb. 29, China delivered the first batch of test kits and masks to Iran. On Wednesday, it was announced that China is sending one million masks to France to assist them. 

Let’s hope, as the weeks progress, China returns the favour to us.

Adam Austen, press secretary at Global Affairs Canada, said in response to a media question that they “can’t speak to what other countries will do” but referred the Sun to news announced on Wednesday that Trip.com Group, a Chinese-based online travel company, is donating a combined one million surgical masks to a number of countries including Japan, Korea, France and Canada.

Ehhh, it looks like a pretty good investment at this point.

China is the ONLY place where quite a few medical supplies can be quickly manufactured due to most companies moving their supply chains over there. Companies either have to wait for China to start supplying them again or build new supply chains that bypass China .... and that takes time.

China is pretty clearly over the hump with regards to the virus, so in the short term their economy is going to get a huge jump start exporting medical supplies while everyone else scrambles to deal with the bug. I suspect they will remember their friends and quietly punish their enemies. Don't be surprised if/when American companies get put at the back of the queue for shipments.

All the more reason to get to work moving those fucking supply chains out of China.

Fahqhard -

Justin is such a muppet, I remember watching a video on YouTube of how socially awkward and uncomfortable he was at the g7 or g20 thing.. you could tell nobody liked him and trump ignored him totally. He was the kid at the party who was not wanted 

That's how he is for most Canadians too.

Helping the worlds largest manufacturer of Medical equipment when they had a sudden need is a really stupid thing to do. Its not like they can make more equipment and pay Canada back when Canada really needs the help........ China doesn't offer to help anyone ever.

EU allocates Chinese aid to Italy to fight against the pandemic

A Chinese aid package sent to the EU, including masks and test kits, will be fully allocated to Italy, as Rome faces the most urgent needs among member states in the coronavirus crisis, EU officials told EURACTIV.

On Wednesday (18 March), European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, said that Chinese premier Li Keqiang promised during a phone call to support the EU against the coronavirus COVID-19.

“China has not forgotten that in January … the EU helped,” von der Leyen said in a video posted on Twitter. “Today, we are the centre of the coronavirus outbreak pandemic, and we need protective equipment ourselves.”

On Monday (16 March), the Chinese Embassy in Brussels had sent a letter to commissioner for crisis management Janez Lenar?i?, offering the EU a total of 50,000 nucleic acid test kits, 200,000 facemasks (N95) and two million surgical facemasks.

The Chinese package was directed to the Emergency Response Coordination Centre, the EU’s body at the heart of its civil protection response. The Centre was responsible for the distribution of the equipment.

After taking into account various criteria, in particular the material offered and the current needs in the bloc, Brussels decided to send all the Chinese donation to Rome.

Italy is “the most appropriate recipient”, an EU official told this website.

The same source added that the country has been the most affected member state by the coronavirus COVID-19 and has “an urgent need” to stop it spreading across its territory and address the overcapacity of their health systems “as soon as possible.

He did it about 2 months ago.

I'm no Justin fan but it didn't happen today and the idea was to help stem the tide at the time.

LOL!

Probably.

They trot him out to read something and then he goes back inside.

I'm actually not upset with this.

Is it out there.

Our agency was looking only to have another company offer us thousands of PPEs.

They thought they may stay open during this but then decided the issue was better dealt with by shuttering for a while.

They gave it to us at cost.
