The pandemic peaked in the United Kingdom in April. Tzu Chi’s anti-coronavirus supplies started arriving in the country on April 21, including 200,000 masks and protective gowns, which were subsequently donated to institutions in London, Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, and Malvern. Medical workers at Homerton University Hospital told volunteers that they had felt completely helpless when they saw their coworkers knocked down one after another by COVID-19, and so were deeply grateful to Tzu Chi for the donation.
