Mixed martial arts star “The Notorious” Conor McGregor slammed the Chinese government for selling batches of faulty medical gear to Ireland that are completely unusable by hospital staff and medical personnel.
McGregor quote-tweeted a video Friday in which Irish Health Services Executive CEO Paul Reid discussed how the Chinese protective equipment “isn’t to the specification of what we actually need before we would deploy it to the front line.”
“Truly horrendous,” McGregor said. “Not only are the prices being raised by these people on all our items. Masks, visors, gloves, ventilators, respirators, oxygen containers, screen monitors, you name it. All jacked in price. The batches coming in are now of no use!”
McGregor finished by describing the Chinese lack of quality control as “ludicrously inhumane behavior.”

National File reported earlier this week on reports that China has sent contaminated personal protective equipment to multiple countries.
Australia, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic have all reported receiving faulty medical supplies from China.
China has also come under criticism for marking medical gear prices up significantly.
Despite the many serious allegations surrounding the Chinese response to the pandemic, the World Health Organization continues to insist that China holds no blame for the world’s current economic and medical crisis.
Last week, Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso scolded the WHO, suggesting that it should be renamed the Chinese Health Organization.
“People think the World Health Organization should change its name. It shouldn’t be called the WHO, it should be renamed the Chinese Health Organization (CHO). This appeal is truly resonating with the people,” the vice PM said.
“Early on, if the WHO had not insisted to the world that China had no pneumonia epidemic, then everybody would have taken precautions. The WHO, which is a global organization, does not even include Taiwan, and then precisely because Taiwan is not a member of the WHO, it becomes a world leader in fighting the epidemic,” Taro Aso continued.
“After that statement is made, the CCP jumps out to correct it, it says Taiwan is a region, not a country.”The full video can be seen below:
The WHO has come under intense criticism for essentially acting as the medical propaganda wing of the CCP.
Criticism of the Chinese response to the virus has repeatedly been labelled as “racist” by the corporate media and verified Twitter users.
