The Coronavirus outbreak continues worldwide as many countries announce state of emergency. Similarly, there are many health organizations that are trying their best to help the victims of the disease. Some companies that are not related to health are donating money or some sort of equipment. We heard that Razer, Alibaba, Apple, and many others have donated masks to needy centres.

Today we have another generous company Nintendo, that has donated 9,500 N95 respirator masks to North Bend, Washington. This news was first shared by North Bend on their official website, where they thanked Nintendo for its donation.
