Jack Ma, a Chinese billionaire and a co-founder of Alibaba announced that he is going to donate half a million of testing kits and one million masks to the USA.

The Alibaba Foundation has already donated protective equipment to Spain, Iran, Italy Korea, and Japan, the most affected countries by Coronavirus.

Now, the Alibaba Foundation will be sending material to the United States to help them fight against Covid-19. The pandemic rapidly spread in the USA due to the lack of tests.

Jack Ma stated that the pandemic is a challenge to the whole world. It cannot be combated by an individual country.

He also added that by sharing lessons and eliminating shortages of resources, we can combat this virus.

Jack Ma is sending medical supplies to Europe, too, as he called for international cooperation to prevent the pandemic.
