China's State-owned enterprises, also known as SOEs have offered 18 free services including air cargo transportation of qualified epidemic control materials, power charging for epidemic prevention vehicles and disinfection of medical aid across the country to combat the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the coronavirus.

Centrally-administered pharmaceutical SOEs were asked to accelerate production of test kits and medical appliances to ensure sufficient supplies, according to the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council.

In addition to donating nearly 1.76 billion yuan of financial support to Central China's Hubei province and other regions by Friday, central SOEs from the construction, civil aviation, foodstuff, salt, energy and power sectors have all taken multiple measures including building hospitals, increasing food supplies, and boosting the productivity for manufacturing epidemic prevention and control materials to win the battle against the epidemic.

About eleven SOE hospitals and 6,000 medical personnel have participated in the front-line prevention of the disease in Hubei, according to the country's top State assets regulator.
