Co-founder of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and a global philanthropist, Melinda Gates has raised concerns over the possible fatality rate in Africa and other developing countries from the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with CNN, Melinda warned that if the world does not act fast enough, then there will be dead bodies “out on the streets“ of Africa.

She said:

It’s going to be horrible in the developing world. 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.

She added, “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 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”.

Well, this statement didn’t go down well with Nigerians, with many ‘casting and binding’, and rejecting ‘evil forces and powers’.

Melinda Gates, who has visited several African countries, and has donated her time and money in ensuring the wellbeing of children suffering from malnourishment, malaria and other health issues, pointed out that slums in Africa will be more vulnerable to the COVID-19.

Well, Nigerians are still very upset with the statement.

    Its mrs gates, you are waiting for to come and talk to you right?
    We are a country that likes to import na, whether we worry or take action. Rent-seekers have stagnated this country, the only thing that COVID is exposing and we are seeing now is the volume of destruction these completely useless rent-seeking Lawyers and Accountants have caused us.
    Even right now, as CBN can make any volume of money they want, there is unrest everywhere because people don’t have any means of feeding, inside what is suppose to be lock-down.
