Technical company connected to the fight against coronavirus.
After the Chinese city of Wuhan went into quarantine, various technical companies announced their intentions to help residents and medical workers struggling with the spread of the virus in the city.
At first, JD.com and Douyin (the Chinese version of TikTok) came to the rescue, after which Xiaomi also announced that it had sent N95 protective masks, medical masks and thermometers to Wuhan. This equipment will arrive today at Wuhan headquarters for the prevention and control of epidemics. The company added that it is monitoring the epidemic and will continue to provide supplies to help the city.
It is reported that coronavirus, which causes a special case of fatal pneumonia, originates in this city. Yesterday, the city was blocked; in the near future, the main flights and intercity transportation systems were suspended. Wuhan is the seventh most populated city in China with a population of over 11 million people. Most residents are not allowed to leave the city until the epidemic ends.
Earlier, JD.com (Jingdong), one of the largest online retailers in China, announced that it would transfer 1 million medical masks and 60,000 medical supplies to Wuhan.
