Mliva handed over the amount to the ambassador for the purchase of a box of face masks. There has been a dearth of face masks in China over the past few weeks.

Mliva said, "We know China's abilities and means, but through this gesture, we wanted to show the Chinese people how much the Comorians feel concerned."

Ambassador Yanjun said he was deeply touched by this gesture.

The death toll reached 1,113 due to the coronavirus  — now dubbed COVID-19.

Another 97 people died in China, raising the national toll, with more than 44,600 people now infected.
