A humanitarian aid donated by China to Pakistan to combat the coronavirus pandemic landed on Wednesday at Karachi International Airport. The medical supply plane included five million face masks (including N95 masks) and 50,000 test kits.
Prime Minister Sinda Sayed Murad Ali Shah was present at the airport to receive the medicine. Earlier in the day, the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan reported that Pakistan had received help from the Alibaba Foundation and the Jack Ma Foundation to help with the COVID-19 epidemic, which was loaded onto a cargo plane in China and shipped to Pakistan.
On its official Twitter account, the embassy said: “Epidemic aid supplies donated to Pakistan by the Alibaba Foundation and the Jack Ma Foundation were loaded onto a cargo plane in China.
The first batch of N95 and surgical masks will arrive in Karachi today. “#ChinaPakSolidarity
