Thousands of rapid test kits purchased from China by European countries
have proven to be defective, according to local reports.
In Spain, which currently has the fourth-highest number of coronavirus
cases in the world, the government purchased 640,000 rapid test kits
from China and South Korea as it fights the pandemic. Experts soon
discovered, however, that the tests it purchased from Chinese company
Bioeasy were only correctly identifying coronavirus cases 30 percent of
the time, according to Spain's El Pais.
