The United States purchased a large shipment of Chinese-made masks for France just before they were shipped from airports in China, according to French government officials.
“A regional president told us that his mask order had been bitten at the airport even by the Americans, who paid three times the price, in cash. It’s pretty incredible, “Renaud Muselier, president of Provences-Alpes-Côtes d´Azur region, said an interview with BFMTV.
Jean Rottner, president of the Grand-Est region and emergency doctor also said that the Chinese-made masks had been bought two or three times more.
He blamed the US intervention for the shortage of masks facing his region.
