The British government announced on April 12 that the UK will donate 200 million pounds (1 pound about US $1.25) to the World Health Organization and other institutions to help poor countries curb the spread of the new coronavirus.

The British government said in a statement on the same day that it would donate 130 million pounds to United Nations agencies, 65 million pounds to the World Health Organization, 20 million pounds to the United Nations Children’s fund, 20 million pounds to the United Nations refugee agency, 15 million pounds to the World Food Programme and 10 million pounds to the United Nations Population Fund. Another £ 50 million will be used to support the work of the International Red Cross in areas such as armed conflict. Another £ 20 million will go to NGOs.

World Health Organization director general Tan Desai praised the UK’s generous donation, saying it strongly demonstrated that the new coronavirus is a global threat and needs to work together.
