by Hui Zhang
JD Health and Sinopharm Group Hubei announced to offer a second batch of 15 million masks for sale exclusively to Hubei province on Mar. 6th. This is in addition to the previous 15 million supplied on Mar. 3rd to further ease the mask shortage.
After the first batch of 15 million masks went on sale, many consumers in Hubei posted positive comments, highlighting that the masks are of high quality and delivered in a timely manner. Most consumers said they received the masks the next day after placing the order.
JD Health also promised to continue to supplement supplies with its partners. JD Health has taken a lot of measures to ensure medical supply to Hubei province since the outbreak of COVID-19. Since mid-January, JD Health has donated 1 million masks and 60,000 items for medical and epidemic prevention, including disinfectant, surgical gloves and other products to major hospitals and related institutions in Hubei province.
On February 29th, JD Health together with Europe’s largest private hospital operator, Fresenius Helios, donated 3 tons of disinfectant, valued at approximately 150,000 RMB in total, to Wuhan’s hospitals and other related institutions.
JD Health has also launched a new online platform to connect chronic disease patients in Hubei with pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies and provides timely information on where they can get the drugs they need, online or offline.
