Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates thinks there’s a long road ahead before returning back to “normal” for the US than people expect, even though a Covid-19 vaccine is being approved and distributed this week. As per Market Watch he said, “I thought the US would do a better job handling it,” Gates explained to CNN host Jake Tapper. “This virus could be more fatal than it is. We didn’t get the worst-case. But the thing that has surprised me is that the economic impact in the U.S. and around the world has been much greater than the forecasts that I made five years ago.”

He also said, “Even through early 2022, unless we help other countries get rid of this disease and we get high vaccination rates in our country, the risk of reintroduction will be there. And, of course, the global economy will be slowed down, which hurts America’s economy in a pretty dramatic way.” As per a clip posted by The Hill on Twitter, he emphasized that wearing masks has essentially no downside and “Bars and restaurants in most of the country will be closed... and I think sadly that's appropriate.”



 

 

Speaking about government transitions, he said, as mentioned in The Hill, "Yeah, the transition is complicating [things,] but the new administration is willing to rely on actual experts and not attack those experts.” He continued, “They're laying out clear plans, so I think we'll get through this in a positive way. I'm pleased with the people and priority that President-elect Biden and his team are bringing to bear on this problem.”

 Pfizer’s announcement that early data suggests its vaccine trials have been 90% effective and positive data on trials of other vaccines in development have led some health experts to say that life could begin to return “back to normal” as soon as spring, though estimates vary. However, there are experts, who like Gates are saying that the initial vaccines may not be perfect and that they "won't necessarily" reduce the spread of the virus beyond reducing the emergency situation, but the need to wear masks and socially distance for years until better vaccines are developed will still be there. Dr Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease official in the US, told CNN that he sees US returning to somewhat normalcy by between April and July, if “the overwhelming majority of people” elect to be inoculated.

Needless to say, with these varying opinions available, Twitter, eager to see the end of coronavirus, soon slammed Gates for suggesting a long-drawn out wait for the pandemic to end. A social media user opined, “How come Bill Gates does not say “sadly Microsoft has to close for the next 4 to 6 months”?” Another said, “I am tired of people like Bill Gates and rich deciding what happens in to our way of life. They dictate to politicians. We suffer. The rich get richer during lockdown. Small businesses go bankrupt. We go without a stimulus. Politicians do as they please. The have and have nots.” A user questioned, “Hey Bill Gates where is the proof that bars and restaurants spread Covid?  We will be waiting.”

One alleged, “Bill Gates body language and shiftiness says it all.   The good ‘ol coffee cup in hand seems to always be by his side when he lies thru his teeth squirming and shifting around talking about “the vaccine” and why bars and restaurants should stay closed.” Another concurred, “Didn’t know Bill Gates was an expert on Covid-19. I guess it’s easy to say shit like this when those restaurants and bars being closed only affects mere mortals who aren’t worth over a billion dollars.” A user alleged, “My first question is. Who is Bill Gates to tell us or provide opinions about the handling of the plandemic. He is not a doctor nor a scientist nor a apidemiologist. What credentials he has. Other than buying time on different tv media w his money.” A user commented, “Bill Gates is not a medical doctor nor a scientist. Why are we listening him?”
