In case of fever, you will have to go to one of the designated fever hospitals in Tianjin.

7. Counterfeit check

Get the right stuff!

It is extremely difficult to give instructions about how to check if your masks or medicine are genuine. 

Some articles will recommend you to check on 

if the serial numbers match the description. 

We guess it is not that complicated to reproduce these numbers on the fake products. 

We tried it and it was extremely hard to navigate and understand for our Chinese staff.

We have compiled here a list of photos of fake and real masks, for sight comparaison and information purposes.
