Jeremy Lin announces donation to fight coronavirus

NBA, Jeremy Lin, coronavirus

Former NBA point guard Jeremy Lin has announced a donation to fight the coronavirus.

Lin will be donating money to get medical equipment to Wuhan, China:

With my bball foundation in China, we’ve donated 1 million RMB to get medical equipment to Wuhan. I’ll also be donating an additional $150,000 towards fighting this virus. Let’s all do our part to quarantine, wash our hands vigorously, wear a protective mask to avoid germs spreading and do our part to share facts and preventative measures. Stay together, fight on!

The NBA suspended its season on Wednesday after Utah Jazz All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus.

Jeremy Lin, who was part of the Toronto Raptors NBA championship team last season, wants more positive attention to be brought to this serious subject after seeing news headlines of racism, xenophobia, attacks on Asians and decaying trust towards people.

The NBA will be suspended for at least 30 days, probably even more if we are being realistic here. Unfortunately, every player in the league won’t be able to get tested due to a shortage of tests.
