While United States has surpassed Italy and the UK in terms of the number of dead from COVID-19 with reports of hospitals overwhelmed with patients and dead bodies left to decompose in homes and in trucks parked on the streets of the US the billionaire philanthropist still chose to talk about dead bodies in Africa. Gates is not the only one to be predicting total doom in Africa. United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in April stated: "Anywhere between 300,000 and 3.3 million African people could lose their lives as a direct result of COVID-19."
