“There’s always been a small group of anti-vaccination people”
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda have now invested multiple hundreds of millions of dollars to COVID-19 research and testing, including their foundation’s recent $70-million pledge, which is set to ensure that anti-coronavirus vaccine is available to “everyone”.
Outspoken American philanthropist and billionaire Bill Gates re-appeared on Trevor Noah’s ‘The Daily Show’ this week to discuss the spike in COVID-19 cases in the US and slam conspiracy theories regarding his motivation for the development and distribution of anti-virus vaccines.
“There’s always been a small group of anti-vaccination people, and we see this with the measles vaccine. They’ve now got a platform, and they’ve joined forces with some political-conspiracy dudes,’’ Gates said, when asked by Noah about some circulating claims suggesting that the businessman’s family could be using vaccines as a pretext to control the population with microchips or even to change their DNA.
