LONDON — Senior British doctors have warned that 250 ventilators the United Kingdom received from China risk causing "significant patient harm, including death," if they are used in hospitals, according to a letter seen by NBC News.

The doctors said the machines had a problematic oxygen supply, could not be cleaned properly, had an unfamiliar design and a confusing instruction manual, and were built for use in ambulances, not hospitals.

Do you think this is just a mass production problem.  Just seems strange that a gift would be of such poor quality.

UK received a big order of PPE from China and the army biosaftey unit are  taking it all before front line staff get it.  They want to test masks  etc.

Is this being antagonistic  to China,  or just precaution.  Maybe they check it from all countries.
