Six million face masks ordered by Germany lost in Kenya – Report

Six million protective face masks ordered by Germany to prevent further coronavirus infections have gone missing, Spiegel magazine reported on Tuesday, citing defence officials.

“The order of FFP2 particulate respirators, the standard recommended for health care workers by the World Health Organisation, disappeared without a trace at an airport in Kenya,’’ a German Defence Ministry spokesperson was cited as saying.

Report says the ministry is investigating the incident.

Spiegel reported that the spokesperson said that tens of millions of the masks had been ordered for delivery to Germany by Friday.

According to the report, Spiegel said the fact that the first major order has fallen through is “more than annoying.’’
