German Transport Minister Scheuer “Eleven million masks, all junk from China”

masksallrubbish

Medical protective material is currently a scarce commodity worldwide and that is why the procurement of FFP2 masks for Germany has not been easy in the past few weeks as Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) has now had to find out.

When a Lufthansa cargo plane landed at Munich Airport on April 7, Prime Minister Markus Söder, Federal Minister of Transport Andreas Scheuer (both CSU ) and Lufthansa boss Carsten Spohr were already standing on the trellis – they were waiting for pallets full of protective masks to find their way out of China.

“That’s good logistics,” quotes Scheuer magazine on this day: “Order, decision, reliability – that fits.”

A quick delivery was planned, Scheuer himself had taken care of it.

“Several hundred million masks” should follow in the coming weeks. Back then Scheuer told the “Passauer Neue Presse” . He is even expecting the sought-after masks of the FFP2 type shortly, it was said in early April.

But the masks didn’t come and German news media had spoken with the Passau company commissioned by Scheuer for the mask replenishment.

“Eleven million masks sighted, they were all junk”

The magazine cited the managing director of the textile company when it came to the surgical masks that Scheuer and Söder had received. The FFP2 masks, the delivery of which was scheduled for April 13, were said to have been bought in China but the delivery was cancelled:

“We saw eleven million masks but they were all junk.”

As a result, “we are a bit late in delivery”, the Managing Director is quoted as saying.

According to the report, he now has the masks produced in China and the process monitored and in the meantime, at least some of the goods have been delivered and the rest should arrive soon.

Scheuer also promised an airlift between China and Germany in an interview with the “Passauer Neue Presse” a few weeks ago. According to “Spiegel” information, there is still no such thing. The Federal Minister of Transport has now campaigned for an additional “land bridge” between the Federal Republic and China.

The first freight train started on Tuesday, he said in the government gazette on Wednesday.
