I offer my condolences to all those who lost their lives, as well as my sympathy to those who have been affected by the outbreak of Coronavirus. At the same time, I would like to express my sincere respect to the healthcare professionals and government officials who are on the front lines day and night.
Toyota has a number of team members that work and live in China. I may not be able to understand the true feelings of the local people, but from our desire to help, Toyota has decided to donate 10 million CHY through the Red Cross Society of China to assist in the purchase costs of medical supplies such as masks, glasses, protective clothing, etc.
We, Toyota, will continue to monitor the situation and be mindful of the feelings of those in the midst of this outbreak, and focus on safety and security as the highest priority.
