Chinese business magnate and co-founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma has for the second time donated Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to all fifty-four (54) African countries.

The items include Five Hundred (500) ventilators, Two-Hundred Thousand (200,000) suits and face shields, Two-Thousand (2,000) thermometers, One Million Swabs and extraction kits as well as Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) gloves.

This donation comes at a critical time when according to President Akufo-Addo, “there is a shortage of PPEs around the world” and it is intended to complement the efforts put in place by Presidents in all African countries to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chinese philanthropist in March gave his first batch of PPEs to African countries and it included a total of 1.1 million testing kits, six million masks, and 60,000 protective suits and face shields to help the continent which has so far recorded 9,310 cases so far.
