Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates hopes that the world will return to normal by the end of 2022, given the high rate of vaccination in developed countries.
Bill Gates in an interview with Sky Network Announced Vaccination rates are very high in rich countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, and it is hoped that the doses will soon be available to other countries. Of course, he does not expect the corona virus to be completely eradicated by next year, but he claims that we can significantly reduce the number of cases.
“There are still questions about the extent to which the Johnson and Johnson vaccine will be used, but rich countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, will reach such high levels of vaccination by this summer that they will have enough doses by the end of 2021,” Gates said. 2022 Release for vaccination in other countries. “Of course, we still can’t eradicate the disease, but we can greatly reduce the number of people infected by the end of 2022.”
The former Microsoft CEO added: “The United States, Britain and others can be sure that the vaccine will be delivered to developing countries later in the year. Given that many vaccines have been effective, the good news is that we can meet the needs of others, and in places like South Africa and Brazil where everyone over the age of 60 should be vaccinated, this will take another three to four months. “It will become our priority.”
According to Bill Gates, it was not surprising that rich countries prioritized their own vaccinations: “It was a good thing that older people in rich countries were worse off than Corona in developing countries. But it is unfair that we have now started vaccinating 30-year-olds in Britain and the United States and not paying attention to 60-year-olds in Brazil and South Africa. “However, within three to four months, the vaccine will reach all countries that are severely affected by the coronavirus.”
At the end of his speech, he emphasized that he hopes that people will prepare for the next epidemics and not forget this event again like the Ebola epidemic.
