Bill Gates clears air on invention of COVID-19
Billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft founder, Bill Gates is voicing out in a bid to clear himself of the allegations pilled up and evidenced with theories that he created the Coronavirus Pandemic.
During a CNN Town Hall interview with Gates, he said: “It’s a bad combination of pandemic and social media and people looking for a very simple explanation.
However, doctored photos and fabricated news articles crafted by conspiracy theorists – shared thousands of times on social media platforms and messaging apps, in various languages where a video accusing Gates of wanting “to eliminate 15 percent of the population” through vaccination and electronic microchips has racked up millions of views on YouTube.
Gates instead, claimed he had pledged $ 250 million in efforts to fight the pandemic, and his foundation has spent billions of dollars improving health care in developing countries over the past 20 years.
“Our foundation has given more money to buy vaccines to save lives than any group,” Gates said, referring to his eponymous foundation.
“So you just turn that around. You say, ok, we’ re making money and we’re trying to kill people with vaccines or by inventing something,” Gates continued.
“And at least it ’s true, we’re associated with vaccines, but you actually have sort of flipped the connection, ” he said, adding he hopes the conspiracies don’t generate “vaccine hesitancy.”
