THE German Defence Ministry on Wednesday denied reports that the military was involved in the loss of 6 million face masks ordered by Germany for medical staff on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak.
A spokesperson said at a news conference in Berlin that no masks were missing from the Bundeswehr inventory.
The official’s statement was based on the reported lost order to the General Directorate of Customs, which he said placed the order in cooperation with the German army’s procurement office.
“Since the delivery was not completed, no payment was made,” the official said.
Six million FFP2 particulate respirators, the standard recommended for health care workers by WHO disappeared without a trace at an airport in Kenya.
The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), dismissed claims that the masks were lost at the airport in the capital, Nairobi.
