I’m not sure how I missed the world’s favorite software developer turned medical expert Bill Gates and his predictions on COVID-19 restrictions, but I would be remiss if I didn’t share them.
According to The Sun, Bill Gates advised that coronavirus lockdowns could last until 2022 throughout the globe, and the first six months of 2021 could be the pandemic’s worst. Since forecasts predict 200,000 additional deaths, Gates recommends that the public continue wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, and social distancing to avoid those deaths.
Gates has also been disappointed in America’s handling of the virus, stating the following:
“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 US and around the world has been much greater than the forecasts that I made five years ago.”
In more recent news, the Microsoft co-founder is surprised about the COVID-19 conspiracy theories that have been linked to his name, as well as Dr. Anthony Fauci. He’s aware of the online posts made about him, and he addresses the theories tied to controlling the public, profits made from the virus, and microchip trackers injected with the vaccines in a Reuters interview:
“Nobody would have predicted that I and Dr. Fauci would be so prominent in these really evil theories.”
“I’m very surprised by that. I hope it goes away.”
“We’re really going to have to get educated about this over the next year and understand .. how does it change peoples’ behaviour and how should we have minimized this?”
Well, Mr. Gates, you did state that you predicted a pandemic five years ago. So I’d say that you set yourself up for the backlash.
Feel free to comment below if you’d like to discuss.
Until Next Time…
