This Thursday, the World Health Organization finally declared the new Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak a global health emergency, which has infected 9,922 people and caused 213 deaths in 21 countries. Nearly 60% of patients are located in the center of the outbreak, Hubei province in China.
The Chinese government has prolonged several times the holidays to make people stay at home as long as possible. Face masks are recommended as a simple prevention when in public. However, the months-long duration of this outbreak has resulted in an enormous shortage of medical materials across China for the citizens and hospitals. Lots of hospitals in Wuhan keep demanding more protective suits and face masks. Trying to help, many organizations started to collect donations and send them to the hospitals. The Red Cross in Wuhan, obviously, has been the choice of many.
