Microsoft founder Bill Gates assessed rumors of his involvement in the coronavirus pandemic in an interview with the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung. RIA Novosti writes about it.
In his opinion, the spread of false facts about vaccinations could prolong the COVID-19 epidemic. “It's a big challenge when people are looking for simple solutions,” Gates said.
The entrepreneur stressed that his foundation has already faced with people's mistrust of the vaccine. He recalled that during the fight against polio in countries such as Pakistan or Nigeria, there were rumors that the vaccine is unsafe and leads to infertility in women.
To combat such misconceptions, Gates says, it is necessary to reach out to influential people, members of society, or religious leaders with great authority. He is confident that only they can explain the benefits of the vaccine to the population.
Earlier in January, a court in Peru accused billionaires George Soros, Stephen Rockefeller and Bill Gates of involvement in the coronavirus pandemic.
The conspiracy theory in connection with the development of a vaccine is being actively disseminated both in the West and in Russia: director Nikita Mikhalkov, in his program “Besogon”, suspected Gates of wanting to microchip all the people of the planet. The Russia 24 TV channel did not broadcast reruns of the issue entitled “Who Has the State in His Pocket?”, Which is why Mikhalkov subsequently complained about the censorship.
