Spain has a very large Chinese community base as well as thousands of visitors of Chinese tourists per year and the Chinese community are rejoicing this morning whilst also fearing for their relatives at home.
The rejoice comes as China’s richest businessman Jack MA founder and owner of Alibaba to where “Chinese shops” in Spain purchase their stocks – donates 100 million Yuan to the cause against the fight of the deadly Coronavirus.
We are all aware of established with the wonderful Chinese discount stores across the sea fronts of Spain’s Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol as well as all the Chinese food outlets but at present they are living in fear in regards many family members at home, but to see their supplier and countries richest man make such a donation back to his native country as brought some happiness.
We spoke to Max Xing who owns a Chinese outlet in Spain’s Fuengirola this morning who told the Euro Weekly News: ” We are so grateful to Mr Ma, it’s a fantastic donation, it really shows he cares about us. We are all very worried about our families, we are a large but tight community here in Spain and everyone is really worried right now as the virus spreads. My family are still living in Qingdao and I am in contact everyday”
Meanwhile businessman Chris Fang who operates 3 food outlets across the Spanish coast said “That donation is fantastic news, we have to beat this virus and this will really help, I have just back from my home town in Dalian as I went back for New Year and everyone is really concerned, my brother owns the famous Alice bar in Dalian and he says business is really bad and only local customers are using when normally it’s a packed international bar, people are of course staying away from China”
The Spanish Chinese community received the news via Twitter from the Jack Ma foundation feed.
Scientists will welcome the funding as US and Chinese parties work together at present whilst the foundation has supplied also equipment in mass to the most affected regions.
The worry goes on for Spain’s Chinese community as it’s expected a vaccination against the deadly killer virus will take up to 12 months.
