The Guangxi government is impressed by international students' support in China's fight against the novel coronavirus since the outbreak began, the education department of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region said on Friday.

Suan Dusit Rajabhat University in Thailand donated 10,000 masks and sent a letter of sympathy to Guangxi University, saying "we believe that China will soon resume its strength with the joint efforts of Chinese people and the international society."

The two universities once cooperated to launch a Confucius Institute at Suphan Buri in Thailand in 2006.

Students of Ayutthaya Technological Commercial College in Thailand sent best wishes for China's anti-virus battle in a video sent to a Chinese vocational college in Liuzhou, an industrial city of Guangxi.

Vietnam students Vu Thi Le and Ta Guang Kiet, who study at Guangxi University and returned to Vietnam during the spring festival holiday, bought 3,000 masks for Guangxi University to ease the shortage of its protective materials.

Afghan student Zekria, a junior at Guangxi Nationalities University, purchased 8,000 masks in his country and donated to a school in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak in Hubei province.

"I take China as my second hometown and hope to do my part to support the ongoing battle against the virus." Zekria said.
