Bloomberg Philanthropies donates $8 million to the WHO to help health workers

Bloomberg Philanthropies has donated $8 million to the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The money will go towards providing healthcare workers with protective equipment and getting them the necessary information and training to detect and treat patients, according to a statement from Bloomberg Philanthropies, the vehicle for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s charitable enterprises.

“The funding will also help with efforts to track and study the spread of the virus, accelerate the development of treatments, vaccines, and tests, and produce guidance on measures that the general public should take to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the statement added.
