Bill Gates Consider That Pandemic Will Become Seasonal Flu Until Next Summer
November 18th, 2021
Coronavirus mortality and overall levels of infection could reach seasonal flu averages by next summer. This was predicted by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who was a guest at the New Economic Forum in Singapore, Reuters reports.
However, he clarified that this is provided that no new, more dangerous strains appear.
Sorden Gates amid the development of innate immunity, vaccination, and the emergence of new drugs, mortality and morbidity should fall sharply, and in the absence of new strains by mid-2022, these figures could reach seasonal flu data.
At the same time, the founder of Microsoft called on the world community to work actively to eradicate COVID-19 to reduce the threat of new pandemics.
He said he looked forward to meeting the challenges of delivering coronavirus vaccines next year.
Bill Gates and his ex-wife Melinda run a charity foundation dedicated to fighting dangerous diseases in developing countries, as well as developing health and education programs in the United States. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been allocated through the fund to develop a vaccine against COVID-19 and to support the poor who are most vulnerable to the pandemic.
