Earlier in October, Microsoft founder Bill Gates said that only a highly effective and affordable coronavirus vaccine could bring humanity back to normal.
Earlier, Gates said that the coronavirus pandemic will most likely end in 2022. According to him, he expects the approval of the American vaccine against the new infection by early 2021. If this happens, then by the summer of 2021 the US will begin to return to normal life, and in 2022 the pandemic will decline.
The Gates Charitable Foundation is currently donating $ 650 million to fight the coronavirus. This became the largest donation among independent foundations.
