SHANGHAI, March 25 (Xinhua) -- The Shanghai-based Fosun Foundation, in cooperation with companies at home and abroad, further donated a batch of medical supplies to Italy this week.

The medical supplies including protective suits, medical goggles, gloves and over 20,000 N95 respirators arrived in Milan on Monday and were delivered directly to eight hospitals in cities hard hit by the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) such as Bergamo and Parma, according to the foundation.

Lyrics from a famous Italian song such as "La vita mia legata a te" (my life is linked to you) were printed on the packing boxes of the supplies, representing best regards to people in Italy, the foundation said.

This is the third batch of medical supplies Fosun has sent to Italy. Earlier in March, Fosun donated over 50,000 pieces of medical supplies to aid Italy's fight against COVID-19.

As of Monday, the Fosun Foundation, in cooperation with other companies, had coordinated the supply of nine batches of medical supplies to countries including Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Britain.
