Footage of the disturbing incident that's quickly going viral depicts the Chinese man wearing a face mask of his own while rubbing his dirty shoes all over cloth material intended for other masks. He's then heard asking the cameraman in Chinese, "Is this good enough? Are these the masks for export?" suggesting that the two schemed out the "prank" specifically against foreigners.
The video was uploaded to Twitter by a Chinese coronavirus vlogger from Wuhan who goes by the name of Harry Chen PhD. Chen, as you may recall, had previously shared video footage to Twitter showing how China's makeshift coronavirus hospitals were already falling apart just days after construction was complete.
For daring to tell the truth online, Chen has seen his social media accounts suspended and removed, forcing him to repeatedly create new ones for posting videos. Chen is reportedly receiving his footage from various Chinese sources who are sending it to him through encrypted channels.
The face mask factory in the video is reportedly located in the city of Zhenjiang, which is in the Jiangsu province. What's depicted in it once again calls into question whether it's really wise to continue allowing communist China to do most of our manufacturing.
What's further interesting is that rather than do something about this safety violation, the communist Chinese government chose to pull the video from its own servers within minutes of its initial upload, though it has since been leaked to Twitter and other networks outside of China.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, warns about how World War III is soon on the way for America:
Now that we've completely grossed you out, consider the fact that many are now pushing for all of America to be wearing face masks, including these potentially tainted ones being produced in Zhenjiang since face masks in general are hard to come by these days.
A Chinese American from Boston by the name of Wenqiong Xue says that she's been pushing for everyone to wear face masks long before it even came on the radar of the Trump administration, which is currently considering making such a recommendation.
Xue has been manufacturing her own masks in her living room using ripped bedsheets and other materials she has lying around, which she thinks will help to protect against the virus.
"We all read so much about what was happening in Wuhan on WeChat," Xue is quoted as saying by CNN, WeChat being a popular social media platform in communist China. "We knew how serious the outbreak was and started being careful much earlier than other Americans."
Together with other members of a local WeChat sewing group in Boston, Xue has reportedly sewn about 1,300 masks thus far, over the course of a week, and is right now delivering them to local hospitals – even though she was advised not to do so because, like the dirty face masks in Zhenjiang, these bedsheet-derived homemade varieties may not be sanitary.
"To me, wearing a mask feels natural," Xue further added, emphasizing that Chinese people are used to wearing masks whenever there are media reports about a circulating pathogen. "But they think it's weird; they think I'm overreacting."
