A plane carrying Chinese medical supplies for Europe to assist its battle against the novel coronavirus landed in Liege, Belgium on Friday night.

The supplies were donated by two charities -- Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation and comprise half a million face masks, which will be sent to Italy.

The two charities are donating in total two million masks and other crucial supplies such as test kits.

Friday's shipment, which is the first batch, arrived at Alibaba's logistics hub at Liege Airport. Further shipments are due over the next few days.
