Pedro’s homeland, Spain has been on a strict lockdown since March 15 and they are the second worst hit country in Europe after Italy, with a death toll surpassing over 3,400 deaths on Wednesday.
The Blues winger has paid for 3,000 protective screens across several Spanish hospitals to help fight Covid-19.
He told Spanish radio Cadena Ser: “The materials are scarce and everything that can be helped is welcome. The hospitals told us that they are a good resource for them, and we wanted to contribute our grain of sand with these protective screens.
“I am very sorry for everything that is happening and the news that comes to us from Spain.
“From here I once again thank all the health personnel, the state security forces, the people who are in the supermarkets day-by-day, thank you to everyone for the work you are doing. Hopefully, we can stop this virus.”
Pedro Sanchez, Spain’s prime minister, warned that the worse is to come, speaking on Saturday:
“We have yet to receive the impact of the strongest, most damaging wave, which will test our material and moral capacities to the limit, as well as our spirit as a society.”
