"Drawing from my own country's experience, speedy and accurate testing and adequate personal protective equipment for medical professionals are most effective in preventing the spread of the virus. We hope that our donation can help America fight against the pandemic!," Jack Ma said in a statement posted by the Jack Ma foundation on Twitter.

Ma said that for the weeks, the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation collaborated to source for materials needed in combating the spread of COVID-19 in affected areas in places like Japan, Korea, Iran, Italy and Spain.
