Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda have now invested several hundred million dollars in COVID-19 research and testing, including their foundation’s recent $ 70 million pledge, which should ensure that the coronavirus vaccine is available to “all people”.
Outspoken American philanthropist and billionaire Bill Gates reappeared this week on Trevor Noah’s “ The Daily Show ” to discuss the rise in COVID-19 cases in the United States and criticize conspiracy theories regarding his motivation for the development and distribution of anti-virus vaccines.
“There has always been a small group of anti-vaccination people, and we see it with the measles vaccine. They now have a platform and they’ve teamed up with some political conspiracy dudes, ” said Gates, when asked by Noah about some outstanding claims suggesting the businessman’s family might be using vaccines as a pretext. to control the population. with microchips or even to change their DNA.
Some even suggested earlier that Gates may be one of the real “creators” of the virus.
“And it’s so easy to click on, especially when a simple explanation for this pandemic – that there’s someone wrong behind it – is somehow easier than real biology, which is actually a little complicated. Microsoft co-founder added. “So we have to make the truth more interesting. We have to label things with the truth.
“Unfortunately, the naivety about how to make social media work well is pretty strong, and it coincided with the election and the epidemic,” Gates continued. “I wish I had the answer, but it is available in huge numbers – and it just keeps growing.”
As deaths and daily cases of COVID-19 are on the rise in the United States, Gates believes the upcoming Christmas season may look rather difficult.
“With winter, when it’s colder, the virus multiplies more when you’re more indoors, so that’s not a good thing. And then there is a certain fatigue – some of the things people have to do, to stay away from their friends is more difficult, ”explained the business mogul.
While applauding the news that Pfizer’s next vaccine would be 90% effective, Gates still clarified that “for the next six to eight months, the news [will be] mostly bad. “
“After that, the volume of the vaccine will have started, and there is light at the end of the tunnel,” he concluded.
Big investments in COVID research efforts
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced last week that it will commit an additional $ 70 million to fight coronavirus disease and “make sure everyone has equal access to tests, drugs and vaccines when they are available”. The money would be distributed between the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the COVAX Advance Market Commitment group, a branch of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.
In August, they already pledged $ 150 million to accelerate the manufacture and delivery of up to 100 million doses of vaccine to low- and middle-income countries by 2021, in addition to millions of personal funds already spent on efforts. similar.
Bill Gates has been called the alarmist by many for calling on the US government to step up its efforts to spread COVID-19 seven months ago. In 2015, the philanthropist, who has donated millions of dollars to child nutrition efforts in Africa, told an appearance on TED Talk that the world was not ready for the next big epidemic.
