So far just in the UK!

Yesterday, my wife suggested going on Amazon to buy some hand sanitizer refills.

The only ones that they were shipping were the ones made in Red China, often with cute panda bear pictures.

Tell her to use dawn dish soap.

If that stuff take grease of form greasy hands you’d think it would take a bug off your skin, no?

I mean, they use it to clean up birds from an oil spill.

It’s like the old joke about a pill that helps with memory, it didn’t work because nobody could remember to take it.

“overseas”

Yeah, right. Everybody is speaking in code. The UC system told students that they must use COVID and will be in trouble if they use any other name for it or if they mention that big communist country in the far east that shares a name with fine dishes you inherited from grandma.

So not only are the Chinese shipping them covid kits that are only 30 percent accurate and you have a better chance of determining that one has covid by throwing a dart at a dartboard but they are sending them covid infested kits.China alone is responsible for this pandemic and continues to facilitate its spread. I read that Somalia only has 3 cases of Covid 19 to date. The 3 idiots tried to hijack a Chinese ship.lol
