US industrial giant Honeywell said Tuesday it has donated $2 million worth of supplies including masks and air purifiers to China’s Hubei and Shaanxi provinces to support the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.
Among the donations, 500,000 KN95 masks were delivered to Wuhan on February 2, which will be provided to people who needed them most in the city, the epicenter of the epidemic.
A total of 3,000 air purifiers have been donated to hospitals across Hubei Province, to help improve air quality and create a better environment in those hospitals.
The company also donated fire and security systems to a makeshift hospital in Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shannxi Province.
"As a company that has been deeply rooted in China for so many years, Honeywell is fulfilling its responsibility and is joining this cause. I sincerely hope that we can defeat COVID-19 soon," said Scott Zhang, president of Honeywell China.
