He thanked the billionaire for being there for Pakistan when the country was badly in need of help.
Ali Haider Zaidi further added that China has always supported and helped Pakistan like a brother and surely they will together be able to beat the coronavirus together and end it once and for all.
A large number of medical equipment was delivered to Pakistan on Wednesday from China which was donated by Jack Ma. The equipment consisted of 5 million face masks out of which some mask was N95 and around 50,000 testing kits. These supplies were a help to Pakistan from a true friend China.
So far, Pakistan has reported more than 1000 coronavirus cases out of which 8 have died. To avoid the spread of the virus, the provincial and federal governments both have imposed a few important measures. As a precautionary measure, the government of Sindh has been locked down for 14 days while in Punjab there is a partial lockdown.
On the other hand, the provincial government has also hired 4,000 medical professionals on an emergency basis in order to boost the efforts to stop the spread of the virus.
