Google donates a total of $800 million to health organizations to combat COVID-19

Google on Friday announced an $800 million pledge to support businesses and health organizations fighting the coronavirus crisis.

CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog, the tech company will give the World Health Organization and global government agencies a total of $250 million in ad grants  up from the $25 million it announced a few weeks ago to share information on how to battle the spread of the virus.

Facebook has offered free ad credits to the WHO and other institutions to provide accurate information about the coronavirus, but the WHO has officially placed any ads on Facebook yet. 

The organization is working with Facebook in other capacities, including the company's Coronavirus Information Center and a health alert account on WhatsApp launched last week.

Google is also working with one of its suppliers, Magid Glove & Safety, to produce up to 3 million masks in the coming weeks that it will donate to the CDC foundation.
