Pep Guardiola, a Catalan himself, has donated to a campaign sponsored by the Barcelona College of Physicians in order to provide protective equipment for doctors and nurses fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in Barcelona.

As of Tuesday evening, Spain has the second-most new cases behind the USA, and the second-most new deaths behind Italy.

The 'Angel Soler Daniel' foundation had only raised €33,000 before Pep Guardiola's substantial donation, according to the College.
