Chinese citizens thank S. Korea for emergency assistance Updated: 2020-01-31 07:01:48 KST

As South Korea sends China relief goods to help it fight the coronavirus, ordinary Chinese people are expressing their gratitude online.
Earlier this week, the South Korean government decided to offer 2 million masks and 100-thousand sets of protective clothing and goggles to help contain the epidemic in China.
News of that assistance was carried online by China's state newspaper Huanqiu Shibao and news portal Netease.
It's also been reported in China that South Korean firm Hyundai Motor is offering medical relief goods worth 5 million Chinese yuan and 10 million yuan in cash for pneumonia treatment.
Reacting to the news in online comment sections, Chinese citizens expressed their thanks, saying Seoul's assistance shows the two countries' friendship.

And there's more help on the way.
Seoul's foreign ministry announced Thursday that it's offering emergency assistance worth another 5 million U.S. dollars.
A couple of South Korean associations comprised of people who've studied in China will buy products that are needed in the affected areas and the government will fund it.
Seoul says the assistance reaffirms South Korea and China's deep bond.
