China exports ventilators and masks crucial in coronavirus fight

As hospitals across the world run out of protective gear against COVID-19, China ramps up medical supplies production.

    The Chinese government is donating 1,000 ventilators to the hard-hit US state of New York, one of the many jurisdictions across the world competing for medical gear made in mainland China.

    But the equipment is sometimes faulty and critics say the Chinese government's donation drive is self-serving.
