    Schools in China have been urged to take preventive measures on COVID-19 as they gradually reopen. In addition to stepping up health monitoring of teachers and students such as monitoring people's temperatures, the schools are also asked to maintain good sanitary habits of the teachers and students through frequent hand washing and the use of face masks and hand sanitisers.

    "We are very grateful for this care pack donation by INEOS as it is a timely and practical relief to our students while we try to resume classes safely," says a spokesperson from Jinben Primary School.

    The £1m INEOS Community Fund was established by INEOS Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe in March 2020 in tandem with the company's COVID-19 "Hands On" campaign, which set up new production lines to provide millions of bottles of free hand sanitiser per month to hospitals and frontline healthcare. The fund enables INEOS sites across the world to support the charitable organisations doing vital work in their local communities at this particularly difficult time.

    "INEOS has always been committed to making meaningful and valuable contributions especially to the communities where our sites are located," says Weizhong Wang, General Manager, INEOS Styrolution Foshan. "We are delighted that we can help to keep the students and teaching staff safe as they look towards resuming their activities in school through the INEOS Community Fund."
