People from around Japan have begun offering support to the residents that remain in locked-down Wuhan, a major Chinese city at the center of a coronavirus outbreak.

Inagora Inc., an e-commerce operator based in Tokyo, launched a campaign Monday to ship face masks, free of charge, to residents of the city and in other parts of the Hubei province in which it is located. The operator of the Wandou e-commerce platform, which sells Japanese goods to Chinese customers, saw all 10,000 packages each containing five face masks sell out within about an hour after it started accepting orders.
