In these difficult times for the whole world, when the COVID-19 virus spread far beyond the People's Republic of China, every collective must feel responsible for their own and their loved ones' health.
Thus, the staff of the Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design has not stayed away, and is working hard to curb the spread of infection both in Ukraine and abroad. Coronavirus is not a natural disaster, but a disease; so it should be treated, and even better prevented. When the trouble came to the PRC, the university sent aid to students and staff of the Kyiv College of QLUT (Jinan, Shandong Province) with special protective masks and suits.
