A speech that the creator of Microsoft made in 2015 where he said that according to the investigations of his foundation, the world was not prepared for a true global pandemic, and he was right, has become very viral on social networks.

Our dear Bill never disappoints us. Always one step ahead of everyone. And for no one, it is a secret that he is one of our favorite billionaires.
Cuban is one of those eccentric millionaires who give us viral laughter for the things he does. However, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks without being distant from the situation that the world is going through due to the coronavirus pandemic, confirmed to Forbes magazine that the employees of the American Airlines Center, where the Dallas Mavericks play, will receive the salary payments as if the NBA season had not stopped. And if we believed that it would not help the hospitals, we were wrong, because the millionaire, along with other basketball players like Luka Doncic and Dwight Powell, will donate $ 500,000 to support health workers in Texas.

But not all donations stay in the United States.

For its part, the company is donating more than $ 800,000 to the Hubei Province Prevention and Control Centers, and has set aside more than $ 3 million in grant funds to help achieve the cure for COVID-19 throughout the world. A foot clap for Michael Dell.

Giovanni and his mother are the owners of the Ferrero confectionery, which produces not only the famous Nutella but also the Kinder and Ferrero Rocher chocolates. According to Forbes magazine, the family would have given the Italian government 10.7 million dollars to fight the Coronavirus, since this is the second country that has hit the pandemic the most. Congratulations to the Ferrero family, now with more reason, we continue to buy their chocolates.
If we have not heard of him, he is one of the owners of Netflix, the largest streaming movie platform in the world.

The co-founder of Asia’s largest online sales company Alibaba donated more than 500,000 test kits that are needed to diagnose people suffering from coronavirus symptoms, as well as a million face masks to the United States.
