Coronavirus has taken over the world in months causing fear all over the globe. To curb its spread, footballers among other well-wishers have made donations to help stop the spread of the virus.
Manchester City boss, Guardiola is also on the front line strongly fighting Covid-19. The manager has donated 1m euros to provide medical equipment in his home country Spain.
The former manager and Barcelona player made his donation to a campaign launched by the Angel Daniel Foundation and Medical College of Barcelona.
“The campaign aims to collect medical material and financial contributions from collegiate doctors and the general population. Also, it is geared towards the purchase of medical equipment lacking in health centers in Catalonia.” A statement from the college read.
“It will also help finance alternative production through 3D printing and other methods of respirators and personal protection equipment for healthcare staff.”

The country has registered 2,966 deaths and almost 40,000 positive cases. The region of Catalonia, where Guardiola is from, is one of the worst-affected parts of the country.
