The club said in a statement that the masks will be given to those who need them to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

They are masks for daily use, which arrived in Barcelona this week - set for use in old persons' homes. 

Taiping Life Insurance, now the situation in China is better, got in touch with Barca to contribute. Over 27,000 have died because of the virus with more than 500,000 infected.

Barcelona, at the start of the health emergency when China was the most infected country, had mascots wear 'Stronger Together' shirts onto the pitch in support of the country.
