COVID-19: Gates Foundation increases funding to $250m For Africa, South Asia

As confirmed cases of Coronavirus increases globally, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has expanded funding for it own global response with an additional $150 million.

The additional funding brings the foundation’s commitment to the fight against COVID-19 to more than $250 million (N87.5 billion).

A statement released by the foundation on Thursday said the new funding will also provide partners in Africa and South Asia with resources to scale up their COVID-19 detection, treatment, and isolation efforts.

The new fund is to help strengthen African and South Asian health systems, support development of diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines and help mitigate the social and economic impacts of the virus.

The foundation said it will also leverage a portion of its $2.5 billion Strategic Investment Fund, which uses a suite of financial tools to address market failures and incentivise private enterprise to develop affordable and accessible health products.

“These funds, which can include equity investments, loans, and volume guarantees, will be used to help health systems in low- and middle-income countries facilitate the rapid procurement of personal protective equipment for healthcare workers, COVID-19 diagnostics, oxygen therapeutics, and other essential medical supplies,” it said.

    Хочу выразить благодарность компании за быструю и качественную доставку моих товаров! Когда я впервые обратилась в, то я не могла и подумать, что мы станем хорошим бизнес-партнёрами. Все-таки, когда я заказала первую партию, сомнения развеялись: компания работает очень качественно, товар был доставлен в сроки исполнения, в документах не было оплошностей, сам товар пришёл в идеальном состоянии. И еще предприятие предоставляет частые поездки на отдых и обучение. Поэтому я и решила продолжить взимовыгодное сотрудничество.

    Regardless, its because they realised that there was no money to be made from the booming Pakistani casino market. There’s zero casino from Pakistan yet. Its perfectly legal to own real estate in casinos but to not operate over four cards at a time at a live casino and to just have 2 land cards at a hand in an online poker game. However, how could come across a casino when there was no Pakistani cities with sufficient population to support you? That’s where I come in. How do you locate a casino at a nation with no single casino on its doorstep?

    The government of Pakistan has prohibited all online casinos from the nation. Why is this so? Can it be because they don’t like their guests spending cash in casinos? Can it be because the government is worried about organised crime running rampant in the country and the risk that online gambling may bring?
    I’ve been operating in the slot and casino industry in the united kingdom for the past 10 years and I have played many online and offline casino games. My occupation as a consultant has provided me some insight to how to use the Betting Exchange to generate income and I can tell you that its very easy to make money utilizing the market. You can use your charge card to deposit into a”blind” or even non-player account and play against the casino live players, who will have put their bets before you entering the room. Playing on a live casino together with actual individuals additionally gives you the opportunity to utilize a top roller bonus and the opportunity to win huge jackpots that you would not be able to achieve in your home country. Though casinos use different language to predict what is basically the identical thing, I will use exactly the exact terms to explain what it is that you are doing while playing on an online casino.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!
