Melinda Gates, wife of world billionaire Bill Gates has claimed that developing countries including those in Africa would be badly hit by the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
She told American news channel CNN that the African continent is set to suffer great consequences if the pandemic reaches a peak there in similar ways like in Europe, America, and Asia.
“COVID-19 will be horrible in the developing world,” she said. “My heart is in Africa. I’m worried. The only reason why the reported cases of the coronavirus disease in Africa is low now is most likely because there has not been wide testing of people. The disease is going to bite hard on the continent. I see dead bodies in the streets of Africa,” Melinda said.
