  • Shutdowns, Increased Testing And Vaccine: Bill Gates Reveals 3-Step Plan to Fight Global Covid-19 Crisis

That person is Bill Gates, and in an op-ed he wrote for The Washington Post he laid out a three-step plan for beating the virus. The US has seen a significant rise in cases in the last month, and NY has now become the epicentre of the outbreak.

A nationwide lockdown: Gates says that the current state and county piecemeal approach to lockdowns isn't working because the lockdowns-and what is allowed during them-are so inconsistent. In some states, beaches are still open; in others, restaurants still serve sit-down meals. "This is a recipe for disaster".

Gates urged United States leaders to ensure that the lockdown process is strictly followed and said that shutdown anywhere means "shutdown everywhere". "And, are we testing the right people?' We're still not there", Microsoft founder Bill Gates told the CBS This Morning podcast.

"Until the case numbers start to go down across America - which could take 10 weeks or more - no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown", he said in the Post column.

"Any confusion about this point will only extend the economic pain, raise the odds that the virus will return, and cause more deaths", he said. This is why the country needs clear priorities for who is tested.

He emphasized that people could still "use the motherf ***** g app on their phone" to "see their friends". On schools, the environment, unions, fair pay". "And it's against safety nets, if you fall, bad luck.

There has to be a "data-based approach to developing treatments and a vaccine", Gates said, and politicians need to stay quiet and stop spreading rumors about both. This means we don't have a good grasp on how many people are actually infected or a good roadmap of where the virus has been and where it's heading next.

Gates also called for more testing hoped that a vaccine could be available before the suggested 18-month timeframe.

His words: "Even though we'll end up picking at most two of them, we're going to fund factories for all seven just so we don't waste time in serially saying "ok which vaccine works" and then building the factory". Because numerous top candidates are made using unique equipment, we'll have to build facilities for each of them, knowing that some won't get used.

The federal government also needs to do more testing, with the results aggregated "so we can quickly identify potential volunteers for clinical trials and know with confidence when it's time to return to normal", Gates said.

The businessman, who made the disclosure on Trevor Noah's The Daily Show, said two of the vaccines will eventually be picked after billions of dollars has gone into the seven vaccines.
