    Why any country would trust Chinese “expertise” and supplies at this time is beyond me.

    China lied about the outbreak, lies about the impact and now exports shoddy medical supplies. If you want good Chinese help then go to Taiwan. Taiwan from the start worked from a position that the Chinese government was lying and hence has had better and verified success in this pandemic.
