Bill Gates, via his latest blog entry, rrevealed his concern about the situation the world is going through due to the new massive infections of coronavirus.
The Microsoft co-founder believes that over time the virus will subside.
However, consider that this decrease of covid-19 will happen until the end of the year, when the disease no longer poses a major threat to people.
“It is worrying every time a new variant of concern arises, but I am still hopeful that at some point in the next year COVID-19 will become an endemic disease in most places,” said Bill Gates in his Blog.
Likewise, the American philanthropist commented that according to his vision, this year the final stage of the pandemic begins.
“Now that we are beginning to move towards the end of this pandemic, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what went right and what went wrong over the past two years. We can learn important lessons from the global response to COVID-19 that will prepare us better next time, ”he shared.
Bill Gates also spoke about the coronavirus pandemic in an interview with the program “Sophy Ridge On Sunday.”
During his appearance on the show, Gates said he hopes the world will return to normal in no time., although he stressed that this does not seem to be as close as everyone would like.
According to your new predictions, by the end of 2020 normality will return to the world, since by that date there will be an excess of vaccines and the majority of the population will be immunized against the virus.
“The world will completely return to normal at the end of 2022, when there is an excess of vaccines that makes it possible for the entire society to be immunized,” shared the 66-year-old businessman.
Bill Gates also assured that the coronavirus will not disappear completely., although its incidence and infections will decrease over time.

Added to this, the American tycoon predicted that there will be two nations that will have prompt immunization against the virus: the United States and the United Kingdom.
“The United Kingdom and the United States will reach high levels of vaccination in the summer of 2021, so I think that from the end of the year or the beginning of 2022 vaccines will begin to be distributed to other countries to accelerate the end of the pandemic. And that’s not counting what happens with the Janssen vaccines and the introduction of new remedies to the immunization campaign, “Gates said.
The co-founder of Microsoft assured that when most people are vaccinated in the most developed countries, vaccines against covid-19 will be available to other nations.
“Actually, the epidemiological situation in these countries was much worse. It is not entirely fair, but when they have immunized a high percentage of the population, the vaccines will be available to everyone, “he reported.
To end, Bill Gates reiterated the importance of countries investing in their health system and thus avoid a new global health crisis.
“I hope we remember this and are aware that the solution is to invest in Health. Billions of euros have been lost that if they had been spent on Health, the pandemic would not have affected the whole world so much, “concluded the billionaire.
