Confucius Institute at University of León Carries out Anti-epidemic Work
On March 21 local time, the Confucius Institute at the University of León in Spain, in collaboration with the local Chinese community, donated anti-epidemic supplies worth nearly 12,000 euros to the León Municipal Hospital, and Spain’s national police department and its local police department in León City to help local medical staff and police fight the COVID-19 epidemic. These anti-epidemic supplies included 4,000 medical masks, 575 sets of protective clothing, 12 boxes of disposable gloves, and 150 liters of alcohol.
This was highly appreciated by the local people. José Antonio Diez, mayor of León City, made a special video to thank them for the donation. The local media immediately reported on the donation.
The Confucius Institute at the University of León was jointly established by the Xiangtan University and the University of León. It is Xiangtan University’s first Confucius Institute. Recently, the epidemic broke out in Europe. Based on China’s epidemic situation and its relevant experiences in preventing and controlling the epidemic, the institute actively carried out epidemic prevention and control work while abiding by local laws, regulations and measures and keeping in line with the University of León. It gave full play to its role as a bridgehead for cultural exchanges and also assumed its due responsibilities in the fight against the epidemic.
