She warned Africans about the crisis which has been described by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic.

“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.

Malinda Gates said her worst 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.”

She continued: “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 added 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.
