Chinese billionaire Jack Ma says is donating one million face masks and 500,000 coronavirus testing kits to the US, in an effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic. In March 2, Jack Ma donated one million masks to japan.
“Drawing from my own country’s experience, speedy and accurate testing and adequate personal protective equipment for medical professionals are most effective in preventing the spread of the virus,” Jack Ma said in a statement.
“We hope that our donation can help Americans fight against the pandemic!”
The offer came after US President Donald Trump declared a national emergency.
“The crisis presents a huge challenge to all humankind in a globalized world. The pandemic we face today can no longer be resolved by any individual country,” Ma said in the statement. “Rather, we need to combat the virus by working hand-in-hand. At this moment, we can’t beat this virus unless we eliminate boundaries to resources and share our know-how and hard-earned lessons.”
