Under the surge in demand, the Chinese medical supplies market is in chaos
In order to obtain ventilators, masks and other protective equipment, foreign governments, hospitals, enterprises and their intermediaries have sent people to China, and China's medical supplies supply chain is becoming increasingly chaotic.
These people sometimes make emergency visits to Chinese mask factories late at night, and in order to buy a ventilator, they often have to wire millions of dollars between hastily. The middleman is also lurking outside a factory in Shanghai, where masks from unknown sources are supplied.
Facing potential buyers, the Chinese factories are taking advantage of the favorable situation, specifying the purchase conditions and demanding full payment in advance. At the same time, buyers must quickly review newly emerging suppliers, sometimes through videos on the other side of the world.
