    Trudeau sent 17 tons of coronavirus protective supplies to China, now Canada running low

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau authorized the transfer of approximately 17 tons of protective supplies to China — when that country was in the midst of its coronavirus outbreak in February. Now, with the COVID-19 virus afflicting Canada, doctors and hospitals are reporting a shortage of equipment, with some facilities limiting physicians to one face mask a day.

    Andrew Scheer, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, demanded answers Thursday in a statement on Twitter: “Outrageous. [Doctors] across the country are facing urgent shortages of critical supplies. [Prime Minister Trudeau] must explain why he sent 50,118 face shields, 1,101 masks, 1,820 goggles, 36,425 medical coveralls, 200,000 nitrile gloves and 3,000 aprons from Canada’s own [government] reserves overseas in Feb.”

    “It was absolutely certain in early February that we would need this equipment,” Amir Attaran, a professor at University of Ottawa’s school of epidemiology and public health and its faculty of law, told the Globe and Mail. "This decision went beyond altruism into high negligence and incompetence because Canada did not, and does not, have surplus equipment to spare.”
