The USA intercepted the delivery on the way to Germany and redirected it to its own country. This was confirmed by Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU).
The state of Berlin had ordered the respirators with protection classes FFP2 and FFP3 from a US company in China to provide nursing staff with new protective equipment.
How exactly the USA intercepted the delivery is still unclear. Something similar can be heard from France. Renaud Muselier, President of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, also told the television station BFMTV a story about masked theft.

No joke: #China joins U.N. Human Rights Council panel, where it will help select the U.N.'s next world monitors on freedom of speech, enforced disappearances & arbitrary detention—and on health. That's like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief.…
China’s appointment to the UNHRC’s influential Consultative Group, comprised of only five nations, was announced in a letter submitted to the Council on Wednesday by Oman on behalf of the Asian Group, and confirmed by a notice on the website of the UN human rights office.
By joining the UNHRC panel, #China over the next year will influence the selection of at least 17 UN human rights mandate-holders who investigate, monitor & publicly report on specific country situations, or on thematic issues in all parts of the world, such as freedom of speech.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to surge faster than *any* place on Earth, more than DOUBLING every 2 days.

#Michigan now a major US #coronavirus hot zone, followed by NJ and #Louisiana.

As I've warned, the next 4-6 weeks will be hell.

The number of new #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode exponentially with no sign of slowing.

Each day brings more new #COVID19 cases than the prior day, now >20,000 new cases a day – the most in the world.😥

#Spain and #Italy have flattened the curve.

Total US #COVID19 cases continue to set the record and now represent *25% of ALL #coronavirus cases worldwide* (albeit #China doesn't report accurately).

@realDonaldTrump *still* hasn't ordered nationwide #lockdown.

New cases will continue to explode for at least 2-3 weeks.

In light of #COVID19, the ideas that most Americans have about Chinese #food preferences, and eating habits are far from reality. I find them dangerous as they fuel #sinophobia, and distract from addressing real problems. 1/n
I came across the following piece in @ConversationEDU which echoes my earlier thoughts on wet markets in #China 🇨🇳 and #COVID19. It is written by two anthropologists and provides an excellent perspective. Here are some additional thoughts... 2/n…
Contrary to popular belief, most consumers in China don’t eat wildlife and over half of them shun the idea. Consumption of exotic animals tends to be driven by the status rarity provides. It is not the norm. 3/n…

China is the most racist country on earth.

What you see in this video is not an exception. This is the norm all across #China today, and not just for medical supplies (see thread👇).

Can you imagine any other country banning foreigners from stores, restaurants, etc?

In this video a foreigner stands outside a shopping mall and asks the guard,

"I cannot enter? I cannot enter?"

The guard responds, "No, foreigners are not allowed in."

This is on or about March 24th, 2020.
A non-Chinese woman is forced to eat outside a restaurant while her family eats inside.

Can you *imagine* what would happen if a restaurant in America decided to only let white people in?!?

Meanwhile, the Chinese government supports this!

This video is from March, 2020.

Shares of the CCP/#China's Luckin Coffee (their Starbucks competitor) dropped over 80% after they announced an internal investigation into fabricated sales numbers.

Luckin's COO Jian Liu fabricated $310 Million, which is nearly HALF of the company's sales last year.
They announced it via their SEC filing, which means a SEC & US investigation are also coming.…

#THREAD: #China Chases #Indonesia’s Fishing Fleets, Staking Claim to Sea’s Riches

The #Indonesian government appears to have backed away from confronting #China, its largest trading partner.

“Our fishermen feel scared,” one official said

A must read👍…
Backed by armed Chinese Coast Guard ships, Chinese fishing fleets have been raiding the rich waters of the South China Sea that are internationally recognized as exclusively Indonesia’s to fish.

The Chinese city of #Shenzhen has passed a law completely banning all dog and cat meat in addition to other forms of more exotic wildlife, the sale of which has been prohibited in a new national regulation in #China following the #coronavirus emergency.
The #Shenzhen law stipulates heavy fines as punishment and appears to go further than the national regulation. The Humane Society said “the ban has been welcomed by long-time anti-dog meat trade campaigners... as a watershed moment in efforts to ban the trade across China”.
The Shenzhen law obviously also includes bats, pangolins and other wild animals already covered in the new national regulation. Thing is It goes further and bans the sale of dogs, cats and the like even if they’ve been bred for slaughter. #coronavirus #China #Covid19

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to skyrocket faster than *anywhere* else globally.

#Coronavirus deaths also surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana.

#CA and #FL are earlier in their outbreaks, so time and TESTING will tell.

The next 4-6 weeks will be hell.

Daily #COVID19 death tolls in the US and UK are *accelerating* in a straight line on a log-scale chart👉🏼deaths are still increasing EXPONENTIALLY.

All other countries had begun slowing the rate of increase in deaths by now.

The US *still* has NOT locked down nationwide.🤬
Daily #COVID19 death tolls are finally flattening in #Italy and #Spain: each new day has FEWER deaths.

In the US (not locked down), the #coronavirus death toll is ACCELERATING: each new day has MORE dead than the last, and the rate of increase is RISING.

The two things we have seen slow or stop the #COVID19 pandemic are personal responsibility and medical innovation. Americans are much better at the second one. (1/4)
People wrongly applaud authoritarian methods, despite #China lying about results. Fans of #MedicareforAll claim universal #healthcare would help but Spain/Italy prove otherwise. Japan thus far has great results thanks to healthy population & culture rewarding precautions. (2/4)
People w underlying illness are high risk but do you realize how many of those are preventable? When I was researching my upcoming book, MAKE AMERICA HEALTHY AGAIN, I was shocked at how good we are at solving #health problems w research & how bad we are when its up to us. (3/4)

China’s food markets, wildlife trade and origins of #COVID19: A thread

As a PhD student, I spent countless hours in #China’s wet markets gathering data on consumer behavior and #food safety. Here are a few thoughts: 1/n
Wet markets typically sell fresh meat, fish, produce and other perishables. Historically, animals were killed on-site to ensure freshness and water was used to clean the area. Hence the term “wet market”. They are very different from #wildlife markets 2/n
Reports linking #COVID19 and similar outbreaks to wet markets in China have led to calls for the closing of all wet markets in the country. While some wildlife trade does happen in wet markets, this is far from the norm. Confounding the two can be problematic 3/n

@The53rdRegiment @PershingSoldier @CrazyCatRescuer @Irishyouwell @ArmyVet2x @usmc_army Independent scientific analysis has PROVEN by the "backbone" structure, that it cannot be manmade & is a product of evolution.
Doesn't mean however that it wasn't isolated from Horseshoe Bat dung @ a lab near Wuhan, & mod'd w a protein to make it transmissible among humans..
@The53rdRegiment @PershingSoldier @CrazyCatRescuer @Irishyouwell @ArmyVet2x @usmc_army THE question that arises is this: Are ANY of the rumors true [#QAnon] that there's evidence George Soros had an investment in that lab? Bill Gates' $? CF? Follow the money? @POTUS @VP. Was #China complicit, or innocent? Botched their early lack of action & info sharing sure, but

⚠️#COVID19 death toll in #NYC continues to outpace any other global region, albeit #China did NOT report accurately.

Some glimmer of good news, as the rate of rise appears to be FLATTENING in #NYC.

#Michigan not looking good, and #Florida is BARELY testing.

Overall US death toll is doubling ~every 3 days, BUT I caution that most states are NOT adequately testing *still*.

Fever data strongly suggest that our lockdowns ARE working, but cases/hospitalizations/deaths lag. Incubation period + time to get sick enough for hospital or ICU.
Another glimmer of hope: even as #coronavirus testing ramps UP, the #COVID19 case trajectory is starting to flatten.

Although we still have at least 4-6 weeks of hell to endure, the data show that our sacrifices ARE WORKING.

Please #StayHome to SAVE LIVES. I’m with you in this!

#China Uses Fake & Hijacked Twitter Accounts to Spread Propaganda About the #coronavirus Pandemic

Many of these accounts, which previously targeted political dissidents & #HongKong protests, are now posting “propaganda & disinformation about coronavirus”…
New York-based nonprofit media ProPublica, in a study released on March 26, tracked more than 10,000 suspected fake and hacked Twitter accounts and found that they were “involved in a coordinated influence campaign with ties” to the Chinese regime since August 2019.
These 10,000 accounts did not act independently. Using computer programs, ProPublica found that the fake accounts were part of an interrelated network of more than 2,000 accounts.

⚠️@MIT's Dr. Lydia Bourouiba warns: “pathogen-bearing droplets of ALL sizes can travel 23-27 feet.”

She also warns: “droplets that settle along the trajectory can contaminate surfaces”—and “residues or droplet nuclei” may “stay suspended in the air for HOURS.”😳

Mrs. @SpokespersonCHN's #COVID19 blame game continues today as she emphasized that since February 2nd, the US government has shut its borders to all Chinese citizens and any foreigner who had been to #China over the last 14 days.
"So many days have passed, there are still people in the US asking #China to be responsible for the #COVID19 outbreak in the US. Aren't they feeling guilty or ashamed for doing so?"
Then Hua said the #US tried to blame everything on #China, attempting to make Beijing the scapegoat of its #COVID19 outbreak. However, she said the mistake is too big for them to blame it all on #China.
