According to the defence ministry in Berlin, a German army shipment of six million face masks intendedto protect people against the new coronavirus has vanished in Kenya.
“We are trying to find out what happened” to the massive order of protective equipment meeting the FFP2 standard, a spokeswoman said.
One of the major German newspapers has reported that the masks went missing at the Kenyan airport at the end of last week.
It was not immediately clear why the shipment was transiting via Kenya, the spokeswoman said.
Since the outbreak of the new coronavirus, protective mask business has become a gold mine worldwide.
