According to Radio Serre, the Madrid region government had turned to Pique for help when the epidemic was at its worst, hoping that he could trust people to purchase epidemic prevention materials from China.
One of the activities that Peak participated in was to buy a large number of masks and send them to pharmacies for distribution. It is reported that he bought 14 million masks at a cost of 32 million euros.
Pique accomplishes this action through his company Kosmos, which has been hosting tennis Davis Cup matches in Madrid for the past two years. The company has close ties with the Asian market. Its partner Edmund Chu is a native of Shanghai, and he helps consign supplies.
It is worth mentioning that the Madrid region government asked Pique for help. Pique helped them contact people familiar with the Asian market, purchase materials, and organize charter flights, but he did not ask for any financial compensation.
