Pakistan has been paying an exorbitant cost for being an all weather ally of China in terms of the Coronavirus outbreak. All countries with significant Chinese investments have been severely affected and Pakistan is no exception.
And now the Islamic Republic has decided to sacrifice the lives and safety of its own citizens once again in order to pander to the Dragon.
As per a Geo TV report, Pakistan has been procuring medical equipment from the Chinese government. Till now, the terrorist country has procured 12,000 test kits, 300,000 masks, and 10,000 units of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from Beijing.
Apart from this, private entities like the AliBaba Foundation and the JackMA Foundation have also been dumping defective Chinese testing kits and masks to Pakistan.
Now, while the entire world has imposed lockdowns and has stepped up the fight against Coronavirus, Pakistan cannot get over its toxic love for China that essentially emanates out of its nefarious geopolitical goals.
Pakistani media and government is going gaga over the “Chinese help”, while the Chinese medical equipment in general and their testing kits in particular have been rejected across the globe.

Having created the Coronavirus somewhere in its unsanitary wet markets and having also misled the entire world, leading to a severe Pandemic, China stepped up the production of medical equipment- going into an overdrive to export masks, ventilators & faulty testing kits to the world.
Crisis profiteering, unsurprisingly, led to production of substandard quality if masks, PPE, testing kits, etc. The Chinese masks and PPE are defective and risky. But the real problem is the highly inaccurate and dangerous testing kits.
Spain and Czech Republic, for instance, discovered the futility of the defective kits the hard way. After Spain overtook China with a greater death toll than in China itself, and thousands of cases, Beijing exported faulty testing kits to Spain, throwing Madrid’s response to the crisis further off course. Turkey, Ukraine and several other nations have also complained about the same problems with Chinese medical equipments. Many nations have decided to send them back to China.
The entire world has clearly rejected Chinese medical gear because it is doing more harm than good. Therefore, China found a new market to dump its defective medical products- Pakistan, where the life is cheap and building closer ties with the Dragon more important.
Now, these defective testing kits will find their way into Pakistan, where doctors and patients waste crucial time in coming back to square one all over again as the kits have only 30 per cent accuracy.
Pakistan has already suffered a lot of damage due to its strong inclination toward Beijing. Islamabad has become debt trapped, moved towards getting colonialized and now it is inviting upon itself a major disaster bordering on an apocalypse- so much for Islamabad’s fetish with Beijing.
