Melinda Gates, Wife of billionaire, Bill Gates, has expressed her thoughts on the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on developing countries especially those in Africa.
According to an interview with CNN, she said its going to be horrible for developing countries and if the world does not act fast enough, then there will be dead bodies all over the streets of Africa.
“Part of the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests.
“Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted.
She also added that her worst nightmare was when she “saw what China had to do to isolate enormous part of its population. My first thought was Africa. How in the world are they going to deal with this.”
“I have been in townships all over Africa and slums. When we talk in country physical distancing and hand-washing, if you live in slums who can’t physical distance, you have to go out and get your meals. You don’t have clean water to wash your hands,”
