BERLIN - German customs officials are trying to track down about 6 million face masks, ordered to protect health workers from the coronavirus, that they say went missing at an airport in Kenya.
The authorities are trying to find out what happened, a German defence ministry spokeswoman said, confirming a report first published by Spiegel Online.
A Kenyan Airports Authority (KAA) spokeswoman said investigations had found nothing so far.
The FFP2 masks, which filter out more than 90% of particles, were ordered by German customs authorities. They and the armed forces procurement office have been helping the health ministry to get hold of urgently needed protective gear.
The shipment was due in Germany on March 20 but never arrived after disappearing at the end of last week at an airport in Kenya. It was unclear why the masks, produced by a German firm, had been in Kenya.
What exactly happened, whether this a matter of theft or a provider who isnt serious, is being cleared up by customs, a German government source said, asking not to be named.

Gee, I wonder where they are....
Very few people who have been to Africa are surprised by this. Of course high-demand items went missing.
Check with Obama’s relatives.
Never let a good crisis...
The Kenyan government sold them to the DNC, who in turn put them in storage for future use!
Paging Claude Reines, mister Reines please pick up the white courtesy phone.

Africa wins again. Africa always wins.
I watched a documentary of a Chinese co in Africa. They sent the African driver to buy some pipe. The truck left with a full load of pipe but by the time the truck arrived at the Chinese co 1/2 of the pipe was missing.
They asked the driver what happened to it and he just shrugged his shoulders.
Yes, yes, and yes. Check the customs officials. They are easily bribed.
Six million masks have been reported missing from this airport! Round up the usual suspects!
Thats the one.
Expect an email offering to have you share in the profits if only you give them your banking info.
Maybe they are the ones behind Fredo’s brother in his presser.
Check with local warlords or local hoarders.
