Joe Tsai, the billionaire co-founder of Chinese technology and e-commerce company Alibaba, and his wife Clara Wu Tsai have donated 2.6 million masks (both surgical and KN95), 170,000 goggles and 2,000 ventilators to New York.
The donations came in two separate shipments: The first arrived at Newark International Airport on April 2 and has already been distributed.
The second shipment, which New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo referenced at his most recent press conference, arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday.
The Tsais have considerable ties to the New York City-metropolitan community. Joe Tsai owns the Brooklyn Nets basketball team and Barclays Center Arena in Brooklyn.
“We kept hearing cries for PPE from our community and wanted to help,” said Clara, who said New York state authorities will allocate the second shipment, but “it’s our intention to help the most under-served institutions.”
Clara cited Jacobi Medical Center and Lincoln Medical Center in the Bronx and Elmhurst Hospital in Queens as the institutions she and her husband thought might need the supplies the most.
The 2,000 ventilators that were donated are noninvasive, so they are not the type that can be used on patients who are unconscious.

I lifted this article straight from CNN daily updates. https://edition.cnn.com/world/live-news/coronavirus-pandemic-04-04-20/index.html
This shows that the rumours about the Jack ma donations being infected may be very untrue. It may be a way to make Africans reject Chinese donations while the so called big countries are recieving them. The Virus may have come from China but I think there's a serious propaganda to make China look bad. The Chinese did not colonize us neither are they IMF or World Bank. Those that have cheated us throughout our existence continue to do so. They'll rather burden us with loans that will be stolen by our leaders and force economic policies on us. China have created a symbiotic relationship with us that's bringing infrastructural growth to Africa and some people are not happy about it. Africans should use wisdom
