MUMBAI: Video-sharing social media giant TikTok has made a donation of Rs 100 crore to the government of India to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Keeping the safety of India's medical personnel in mind, TikTok’s contribution covers 400,000 hazmat medical protective suits and masks, as an important safety measure.

“The government of India has been making concerted efforts to contain the spread of the virus and through this donation we want to contribute towards this effort. With support from the union ministry of textile, this essential gear, which meets the prescribed standards and guidelines, is being handed over to the ministry of health and family welfare, government of India,” says a release.

While citizens are practising social distancing and staying at home as a preventive measure, India's medical personnel are working tirelessly to keep all of us safe and protected. As a result, our medical doctors and health workers are the most vulnerable and exposed to the virus. At times like these, their safety is of utmost priority, said the release.

Additionally, TikTok’s contribution also covers local/state level medical workers, as it has donated 200,000 masks, to Delhi and Maharashtra governments. 

As a responsible organisation committed to the safety and security of citizens in India, TikTok said that it is open to extending further support by way of additional donations in the days to come.
