Bill Gates spent large parts of 2020 or the public appearances during this time warning of the corona pandemic and advocating strict measures to combat it. Now the 65-year-old has (carefully) good news in his luggage.
In 2020, the co-founder and long-time boss of Microsoft did not miss an opportunity to warn politicians and the public to take the threat of Corona seriously and to consistently fight Covid-19. In the meantime, the vaccinations have started in most countries and an end to the pandemic is slowly insight.
Bill Gates was asked about this in an interview and he also gave Wired information when, in his opinion, we can expect the situation to normalize. However, according to Gates, there are two answers to this, namely whether you live in a rich or poor country.
Basically, Gates was optimistic: “You have to admit trillions of dollars in economic damage has been done and a lot of debt has been incurred, but the innovation pipeline for scaling diagnostics as well as new therapeutics and vaccines is really impressive,” said Gates. “And that makes me feel that for the rich world by and large we should be able to finish this thing by the end of 2021, and for the world as a whole by the end of 2022.”
The end of the pandemic is in sight, but the efforts against Sars-CoV-2 will also have other, sometimes serious, long-term consequences: “If we manage that – whenever – we will have many years with regard to malaria, polio and HIV as well the indebtedness of countries of all sizes and instability. “
The world will therefore take a long time to fully recover from the pandemic: “It will take years beyond that until we are back where we were at the beginning of 2020. It is not the First or Second World War, but it is of this magnitude as a negative shock to the system. “
