Rihanna is ready to do her part during the coronavirus pandemic, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is especially grateful for her donation of personal protective equipment to the state’s overloaded hospitals.
Cuomo tweeted to praise the pop star and generous corporations on behalf of the state, which was recently announced as an epicenter of the global virus after accounting for nearly 5% of the world’s confirmed cases.
“I want to thank @rihanna and the Rihanna Foundation for donating Personal Protective Equipment to New York State. We’re so appreciative of your help and that of so many others who have stepped up,” Gov. Cuomo wrote in his thread.
This comes after Rihanna donated $5 Million to a variety of organizations to help with the pandemic, including the World Health Organization.
