RT @davewiner: A plane from Shanghai arrived at JFK in New York Sunday morning carrying: 12 million gloves, 130K N95 masks, 1.7 million surgical masks, 50K gowns, 130K hand sanitizer units, and 36K thermometers. https://t.co/nIilDj9cm0
Why is China sending anything to the US? Not like the US wants anything to do with China anyway. It's wasted effort in terms of improving relations. If they do want China's aid, let them announce it publicly that they're requesting China's aid.
PS I just skimmed over the article. I don't think it mentions China the country sending those supplies. They also mentioned they made some edits at the end, so maybe OPs information was up-to-date with the article at time of posting?
Foreign orders are large and urgent, but not all Chinese manufacturers specialize in this industry. Some have been temporarily converted to production. Coupled with the fact that standards in different countries are inconsistent and it's hard to coordinate at such a critical juncture, the issue has become particularly complicated.
China must strictly demand medical suppliers ensure quality and quantity and that no enterprise be allowed to put profits above social responsibility and morality. When other countries question product quality, we should, first of all, make relevant investigations. Enterprises involved must be severely punished, or prosecuted, should quality defects really exist. We will never cover up for them or give them opportunities to evade responsibilities.
Ensuring the quality of medical supplies, be they foreign assistance or commercial exports, under the current circumstances concerns people's life and also is of great importance to the reputation of "Made in China" and even China as a whole. Anyone who tarnishes that reputation will not be tolerated.
Problem is you can make unlimited amounts of PP but it needs to cover certain worldwide restrictions and guidelines. As a result from Europe we should wait and see if the PP lives up to world wide guidelines.
Thanks for the positive and detailed headline and accompanying news story -- we are dishearten that this type of headline will not be seen from mainstream news outlets, but at least we can share this on social media --
China saves New York! "A plane from Shanghai arrived at JFK in New York Sunday morning carrying an extraordinary load: 12 million gloves, 130,000 N-95 masks, 1.7 million surgical masks, 50,000 gowns, 130,000 hand sanitizer units, and 36,000 thermometers."
The guy managing this is a fucking logistics rock star.

By the way there is a glaring typo there; 600 million test kits is an outlandish number. It's actually 640,000, 8-9000 which are confirmed faulty and 50,000 to be replaced. The world is constantly using medical supplies from China but it is to be expected standards drop when you need to make millions. Not good for pr i agree.
