Chinese billionaire Ma donates coronavirus testing kits, masks to US

Chinese billionaire Jack Ma has donated coronavirus testing kits and masks to the U.S.

Ma, the co-founder of Alibaba, said 500,000 kits are being sent to America.

Ma will also send 1 million masks to combat the pandemic.

“Drawing from my own country’s experience, speedy and accurate testing and adequate personal protective equipment for medical professionals are the most effective in preventing the spread of the virus,” Ma said in a statement.

Ma’s donation is welcome as the U.S. has struggled to provide testing while the virus has spread.

Medical masks are also in short supply in the country.
