The wife of Bill Gates, Melinda Gates, in an exclusive interview with CNN stated that developing countries including those in Africa will soon be hit harder by the coronavirus pandemic.
Melinda Gates told CNN that the African continent will suffer greatly when the coronavirus pandemic reaches its peak just as it’s happening in Europe, Asia, and America.
Melinda Gates went on and warned Africans about the coronavirus pandemic. “COVID-19 will be horrible in the developing world”, she warned!
“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 Gates added.
According to Melinda Gates, her worse nightmare was when she “saw what China had to do to isolate an 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 a 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”, she stated.
Melinda Gates continued that; “It is going to be horrible in developing world and part of the reason why you are seeing the case numbers don’t look very bad is that they don’t have access to very many tests”.
Melinda Gates then pointed to horrific reports of dead bodies on the streets of Equador and predicted; “You are going to see that in Africa”.
But Africans on Twitter have roasted her and asked her to shut up and keep her negative thoughts to herself.
