China has donated 500,000 face masks, including 50,000 N-95 surgical masks to the Sindh government, and the chief minister received them at the Cargo Terminal of the Karachi airport on Wednesday.

A Chinese special cargo plane brought the consignment on Wednesday morning. Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah under the banner of joint Pakistan-China national flags took part in the formal ceremony to receive the consignment.

In a tweet later in the evening, Law and Environment Adviser Barrister Murtaza Wahab, who is also the spokesman for Sindh government, said that Chief Minister Shah had decided that out of the 500,000 protective masks received from China earlier in the day, Sindh will keep 200,000 and the remaining would be distributed among Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan.
