5. This is what we were finding out as customers at Lowes, but some DUers weren't

believing us.

"Employees of Chinese state-owned companies were directed to purchase whatever they could find in the way of masks and protective clothing to send back home in a massive humanitarian effort."

"Between January 24 and February 29, the National Customs in China inspected and released 2.46 billion pieces of epidemic prevention and control materials, including 2.02 billion masks and 25.38 million items of protective clothing. The official report also states the value of these supplies was worth 8.2 billion yuan (approximately $2 billion)."

So, not only was our government sleeping at the tiller, but they were helping the Chinese with this endeavor with the 18 tons of PPE that were sent to China in early February!
