Celebrity couple Huang Xiaoming (黄晓明) and Angelababy have donated 200,000 yuan-worth of surgical masks to Wuhan medical personnels and front-liners who are battling the Wuhan coronavirus, which has now spread to over 1,300 people across China and the world.
Citizens of Wuhan and neighboring cities are taking extra precautions to counter the coronavirus, which causes the infected to develop pneumonia-like symptoms similar to that of SARS. Universal hygienic precautions include wearing surgical masks while being outdoors, and the availability for such essentials are at an all-time low in China.
Many Chinese celebrities have donated money, including Huang Xiaoming and Angelababy, to charity efforts. On January 24th, the China Siyuan Foundation publicly thanked the couple on social media for donating 200,000-yuan worth of surgical masks to the medical personnel and front-liners who are currently fighting the virus in Wuhan.
Huang Xiaoming reblogged the post and said, “The health professionals are all of our heroes.”
