Thousands of rapid test kits purchased from China by European countries have proven to be defective, according to local reports. In Spain, which currently has the fourth-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world, the government purchased 640,000 rapid test kits from China and South Korea as it fights the pandemic.
Experts soon discovered, however, that the tests it purchased from Chinese company Bioeasy were only correctly identifying coronavirus cases 30 percent of the time, according to Spain's El Pais.

Are these govt's stupid or what...
China builds garbage infrastructure like roads, bridges, etc. in foreign countries. No surprise they sent thousands of faulty, inaccurate Wuhan coronavirus tests to Europe while trying to save face over their pandemic https://t.co/PoeWhGTP20— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) March 26, 2020
Eighty percent of coronavirus tests ‘donated’ by China to Czechs are faulty https://t.co/BOj8bPKFzs— Bo Snerdley (@BoSnerdley) March 27, 2020
"The majority of rapid coronavirus test kits supplied by China to Spain and the Czech Republic are faulty. Because of the high error rate, the Czechs will continue to rely on conventional laboratory tests, of which they perform about 900 a day."https://t.co/ybcghaxsj3— The Professional Heckler (@hecklerforever8) March 27, 2020
