Usually, Chinese messages obscure whether these shipments are commercial deliveries to fulfill orders placed by recipient-states or donations, and describe them as “support” or “assistance” to foreign countries, which misleads public opinion, Jakóbowski said.
For example, Chinese media and Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio have not clearly distinguished between the Chinese Red Cross donation, which included 50 ventilators, and the contract negotiated by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Di Maio for the purchase of “a thousand ventilators for Italian hospitals” and other medical supplies, wrote Jakóbowski.
According to Reuters, the transportation was organized by China’s Red Cross, which is mostly state-funded and overseen by the Chinese Communist Party. The shipment was accompanied by nine medical personnel from China.
Silenced by the RegimeChinese donations are used by Beijing to soften the fact that Beijing did not take any action to warn the public and prevent the spread of the CCP virus, Jakóbowski said. He added that the CCP also failed to act in January to prevent millions of people from leaving Wuhan for the Lunar New Year, leading to a worldwide COVID-19 outbreak.
The CCP tried to muzzle Chinese citizens who revealed the truth about the epidemic outbreak.
How Serbia Obtained Protective Masks
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said during a press conference on March 15 that he had sent a letter to Chinese leader Xi Jinping to ask for help with medical supplies needed to curb the spread of the CCP virus after the European Union adopted a new requirement for exporting medical protective supplies to non-EU states in order to secure supply for EU members in need.
Vučić said that Serbia had purchased 5 million masks from China and was in the process of procuring new respirators.
The second batch of medical supplies and a group of Chinese medical experts arrived from China on March 21.
Serbia will implement massive testing of its population and immediately isolate mild cases of COVID-19 in “makeshift clinics,” while the more severe will remain in hospitals. Those, who violate “social distancing guidelines, including a curfew” will face 3 to 12 years in prison, Albert wrote.
China’s state media widely publicized how Vučić praised China for its response and kissed the CCP flag to show his appreciation, as well as Vučić’s dissatisfaction with the EU responsiveness, wrote Albert.
“Repairing China’s domestic and international reputation in the aftermath of its own fight against the coronavirus is no doubt the primary motivation driving the propaganda and foreign assistance push,” he added.

China Seizes Foreign Manufacturers’ Masks
“[China] nationalized an American factory that produces [the masks] there,” he said.
Chinese authorities seized 750,000 of Respilon’s masks stored in a warehouse in China, Respilon’s Managing Director Jana Zimova told The Epoch Times.
The company managed to recover 120,000 of these masks, brought them back to Czechia, and donated 50,000 of them to charities and the Czech government, Zimova said. “The rest of our goods is still in China,” she added.
