Myanmar companies donate disposable masks to China

Two companies from Myanmar donated a batch of disposable masks to China to bolster its efforts to combat the novel coronavirus.

A total of 36,000 disposable masks were handed over by Young Insurance and Htoo Thit to the Chinese embassy in Myanmar.

The Chinese government has done a very good job fighting the outbreak. I wish the medical staff working the front line are healthy and hope they can overcome the virus as soon as possible, said Thiha Aung, chairman of Young Insurance.

Zaw Lin, director of Htoo Thit, said, Our aim is to help as much as we can to encourage our neighbor.

Our embassy plans to send these donations to the areas which are in need without delay, Li Xiaoyan, charge d'affaires of the Chinese embassy in Myanmar, told Xinhua, adding that these donations showed the deep Paukphaw (fraternal) friendship between the two peoples.
