TikTok, Gates Foundation donate $20 mn to aid Covid-19 fight in Africa

Apr 30, 2020 16:02 IST

Reports indicate that Chinese social media platform TikTok and the Gates Foundation donated $10 million each to the GAVI vaccine alliance to help efforts in fighting Covid-19 in Africa. GAVI has said the funds will be used to distribute and deploy new vaccines that prevent Covid-19, once they've been developed, trialled and officially licensed. Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the WHO, UNICEF, the World Bank and others, GAVI arranges bulk purchases to help reduce the cost of vaccines in poor countries.
