Despite being a software engineer with no medical qualifications, Bill Gates has somehow managed to put himself at the head of the global response to COVID-19. Now he’s demanding $1 billion a year for the WHO so it can fight an as-yet-nonexistent variant of the virus. The Blaze’s Paul Sacca reports (abridged):
Bill Gates – the software developer – gave an interview to the Financial Times where he rang the alarm about the possibility of a “more fatal” variant of COVID-19. In an interview with the British economic publication, the Microsoft billionaire petitioned for a pandemic response task force that would cost $1 billion.
Despite there being more than 6.2 million COVID-19 deaths, Gates warned that the pandemic could get even deadlier.
“We’re still at risk of this pandemic generating a variant that would be even more transmissive and even more fatal,” Gates told the Financial Times.
“It’s not likely, I don’t want to be a voice of doom and gloom,” Gates added. “But it’s way above a 5% risk that this pandemic, we haven’t even seen the worst of it.”
Gates estimates that the pandemic task force headed by the WHO would cost “over $1 billion a year.”
