Jackie Chan announces 1Crore rupees reward for Coronavirus cure

The coronavirus that originated in the Wuhan city in China in December 2019 has now spread to 25 countries with close to 40000 people affected and casualties nearing 1000 as well. While many scientists are working hard to develop a vaccine to control what has been dubbed a global epidemic.

Superstar Jackie Chan has announced a reward of 1 million yuan (INR 1Crore) for those who develop a cure for the coronavirus. He has already donated a large amount for masks and other essential supplies to China. Chan has stated according to The Nation "Science and technology is key to overcoming the virus, and I believe many people have the same thought like me and hope that an antidote can be developed as soon as possible. I have a 'naive' idea now. No matter which individual or organisation develops the antidote, I want to thank them with 1 million yuan.
