Chinese firm donates face masks to Chicago

CHICAGO: A Chinese company donated 250,000 face masks and 30,000 face shields to the central U.S. city of Chicago to assist its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Chicago hosted a brief ceremony at the downtown United Center to receive the donated anti-coronavirus supplies.
Attending the ceremony were Deputy Mayor Samir Mayekar and Ni Pin, president of the donor company Wanxiang America Corporation, a Chicago-based U.S. branch of the Wangxiang Group, a Chinese automotive components manufacturer.
“We face big challenges today,” Mayekar told media. “Our great corporate partners step up saying we will help you at the time you most need, so they got hundreds of thousands of PPEs (personal protective equipment) … it’s something the City will never forget.” – Agencies
