This is the text (if you need help).

The magazine Bloomberg has named Mr Zhong Shanshan as China's richest man. He is worth $58 billion. He is $2 billion richer than the previous number one. Mr Zhong made his money from his bottled water company. He also makes vaccines. Zhong is 17th on the global rich list. He might move up that list in the future.

Zhong Shanshan, 66, started his water company in 1996. This is when China's bottled water market started. It is big business in China. Most people prefer bottled water to tap water. Zhong's vaccine company is making a vaccine to fight COVID-19. China's media call Mr Zhong a "lone wolf". He is rarely seen in public.

Back to the richest man lesson.
