The world’s second-largest economy China is facing wartimes conditions as novel coronavirus continues its ugly streak. With over 31,532 coronavirus cases reported, the death toll has risen to 638. Sadly enough, the city of Wuhan is in a pitiful state. Currently, the city is facing a death rate of 4.1 percent due to coronavirus.
In an attempt to control the spread of coronavirus, the government has isolated Wuhan. And now the city is facing a shortage of food and medical supplies. No crypto and no fiat is of any use to the residents of Wuhan. And that is why communities are coming together to help overcome the shortage.
The leadership team of Phemex, a cryptocurrency derivative exchange also did their bit to control the spread of coronavirus. With public service as their core value, the project donated 10K high-grade masks to the residents of Wuhan. By contacting mask suppliers in Japan and hospitals in Wuhan, the team made sure the masks were delivered to the city.
According to the team, a twitter user @piptitious helped them source the masks from Japan. Now that the Japanese government has raised some restrictions in sourcing the masks, the team is looking for alternatives to provide more help.
Big thanks to our Community to help us send 10,000 masks for the residents of Wuhan during this #coronavirus crisis and to @piptitious for sourcing these high-quality masks from Japan that meet the standards set by Healthcare Organisations.
