The video features an anonymous good Chinese Samaritan.

New video shows an anonymous Chinese man fleeing a police station after he dropped off 500 face masks to help them combat the coronavirus outbreak.

According to Al Arabiya, the unverified CCTV footage was recorded at a police station in Anhui province, showing the man running into the station and quickly depositing boxes of face masks onto the counter.

Two policemen are seen attempting to chase the man, apparently to thank him for his kindness, but simply salute him when they fail to catch him.

Since it was uploaded, the video has gained over 66,000 views, with many commenters praising his gesture and appreciating the solidarity he showed with his country.

Originating in China's Wuhan province, the World Health Organization has declared coronavirus a global health emergency, with the virus claiming nearly 213 lives and already infecting over 10,000 worldwide.
