Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) contributed 10 thousand pieces of medical gloves to a hospital at Hebei University, China, due to the outbreak of coronavirus or also known as Covid-19.
The UMP Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ir. Dr. Wan Azhar Wan Yusoff handed over the medical gloves to Professor Dr. Guo Fuliang, the Director of China Confucius Institute (CI) UMP, who is also a Professor from Hebei University.

Malaysia is the world’s largest manufacturer of medical gloves.
UMP took the initiative to donate medical gloves to a hospital at Hebei University as China is currently facing a shortage of medical supplies.
UMP hoped to assist China in combatting Covid-19.
“We wish Covid-19 will be under control in China, and all other countries will be free from the virus,” he said.
