Bill Gates, who is the CEO of Microsoft, finally opened up how he feels about the pandemic. The billionaire, who is also highly involved in public health projects, aired his fears about the take the US has on the virus. He feels that the president and some of the governors are taking measures that will expose the states to higher infection levels.
With over 4 million cases of Covid-19 and almost 150,000 deaths from the virus, the US is still leading in victim numbers.
The founder of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation notes that the country called off the lockdown too early when the infections and deaths from the virus were still rife. Nevertheless, he notes, the summer season could mean good news regarding the virus. Infections will reduce, which is a good thing.
On the other hand, come fall, the states that were still safe will be at a higher risk. This is highly based on their vulnerability; as seen earlier, places that get a shock are those that had the fewest or even no infection record in the first three months.
While some governors have taken measures, others have gone as far as reopening restaurants and bars. This poses a high risk for US residents, who may have the virus hit more badly after summer.
Worse still, the US does not seem to take the virus seriously, regardless of the screaming number of infections and deaths.
