A claim, it should be noted, that both Apple and Amazon deny in substantial detail, not at all the "we're not talking about it" sort of response you might expect if they were tangled up in gag orders.

You may have seen in the news that the head of Interpol in China just "randomly disappeared" Friday.



my surprised face, etc.

Fairly important warning. You probably recognize the "CE" mark indicating that a product meets European health and safety requirements (it stands for Conformity [to] European [standards]).

Apparently there are Chinese manufacturers selling goods - including PPE - with fake CE marks on them, which is legally allowed (for now anyway) in China using a virtually identical marking known as "China Export":

This isn't some tabloid hooting and hollering either*. The source is the CE's own website.

*(I mean, maybe they are, but I don't usually go looking for inferior sources to confirm a story...)
