The bitter trade war between the US and China has not stopped several US-based multinational companies from pledging millions of dollars in aid to support China in relief efforts. The coronavirus epidemic is proving to be a trying time for the Chinese people, and many companies feel a moral obligation to honor their deep ties with China. They are determined to provide donations for food, surgical masks, hospital gowns, and vaccination research.

Here’s what you should know about what’s currently happening.

US Companies Pledging to Send Aid

Apple CEO Tim Cook provided his support to victims of the viral outbreak. The company is set to provide donations to “groups on the ground.”

With over 400 retail outlets and 19 distribution centers in China, Walmart partnered with a nonprofit to donate 1 million RMB for local relief support and medical supplies in the province of Hubei.

In a press release, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation committed to providing up to $100 million to improve and advance detection, treatment, and isolation efforts; protect at-risk populations in South Asia and Africa; and expedite the development of drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics.
