But with their Premier League title charge put on hold – at least until April 4 but likely for longer – the Senegalese international is still delivering the goods.
As of Tuesday, his homeland has had 27 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
However, it is understood two of those people have made a full recovery.
Liverpool have not had any positive tests for Covid-19 but players are following personal training programmes at home with the Melwood training ground closed as a precaution.
Mane's donation – equal to around 30 million CFA francs – is the latest in a string of selfless acts from the Reds No10.
The star – certainly one of football's good guys – was filmed lugging water bottles off the Senegal team bus in November.
Mane donated £200,000 to help build a school in his home country earlier in 2019 – having already paid to build a hospital.
During the summer break, he then made sure work was going ahead as he flew to Senegal to check on the school’s progress.
It’s claimed Mane even gave out football kits and money to local kids on his trip home.
He even handed a Super Cup ball-boy his shirt during the win over Chelsea last summer.
After Liverpool's shock 3-0 defeat at Watford at the end of February, a video surfaced of Mane looking after his international team-mate Ismaila Sarr at the reverse fixture at Anfield in December.
