Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation pledges to donate $250 million for COVID-19 pandemic

Making an additional funding towards the global campaign to fight the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged to donate $250 million.

In a statement issued, the organisation said, “We have new drugs and more potential vaccines than we could have expected at the start of the year. But these innovations will only save lives if they get out into the world.”

The funds will be channelled to parts of Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia for the distribution of life-saving doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
