Germany hunts for six million masks missing in Kenya

German officials are trying to track down six million face masks ordered to protect health workers, which have gone missing from an airport in Kenya.
Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine said the shipment was due in Germany on 20 March but never arrived after disappearing at the end of last week.

It is unclear why the masks were in Kenya.

“The authorities are trying to find out what happened,” a German defense ministry spokeswoman told the Reuters news agency.

Another government source is quoted as saying: “Whether this [is] a matter of theft or a provider who isn’t serious, is being cleared up by customs.”

According to Reuters, Kenya’s health ministry declined to comment and a Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) spokeswoman said the situation was being assessed.
