    A Chinese government-backed property giant has secretly raided in bulk Australia’s supplies of masks, hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and essential medical supplies and shipped them back to China.

    The Greenland Group, which manages high-end real estate projects in Sydney and Melbourne, proactively drained Australian supplies of anti-coronavirus equipment, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

    Three million surgical masks, 500,000 pairs of gloves and bulk supplies of sanitiser and wipes were bought up in Australia and other countries where Greenland operates.

    Yes they did this when the epidemic was at its height in China and Australia still had very few cases. Now that the situation is reversed, the supplies are going the other direction according to the company. None of this was done in secret.

    It was done by criminal gangs when China knew that a plague was on the way. It was done worldwide.

    Of course it was done in secret. China was lying about their crisis. They still are.

    This was done with Communist China knowing full well that they were simultaneously unleashing a pandemic on the "racist" world and stripping it of the very supplies it would need to combat it.

    As I have done in the past, I have no problem condemning China’s for things they have done like not regulating these wet markets, hiding the extent of the initial outbreak, lying about their numbers.

    But this is not one of those. The company posted it on their social media platforms. It was a legitimate aid effort during a time australia should have been stockpiling on their own but did not.

    What you guys should be in an uproar about is China reopening those wet markets that are the very cause of these outbreaks. I’m sure they say it is more regulated than before but as always, you cannot trust that.
