Bill Gates ‘Optimistic’ About the Battle Against Coronavirus

WASHINGTON – US billionaire Bill Gates said that he was “optimistic” about the global battle against COVID-19, AFP reported Monday.
He also urged not to distribute coronavirus medications to the “highest bidders,” stressing that they should go “where they are most needed.”
In a video message on a virtual conference Saturday, Gates said: “If we just let the drugs and vaccines go to the highest bidders, rather than people in the place where they are most needed, we will have a longer time, more unfair and deadly pandemic.”
He added, “We need leaders to make these tough decisions about equity-based distribution, not just on market-driven factors.”
The pandemic has caused disruptions in the drug supply chain, which “could prevent hundreds of thousands of people from getting the treatment they need, and not just in sub-Saharan Africa.”
“But I remain optimistic. We will defeat COVID-19 and continue to advance against AIDS and other health crises. Better diagnostic tools are being developed to identify those infected. Investments are being made in libraries of antiviral drugs that have been a branch of science with little investment. Also, we are making significant progress in vaccines.”
“These platforms will not only be useful against this particular virus,” he added.
“They will also help us specifically for HIV. Of course, there is a big difference between getting a platform and making sure that the products reach everyone who needs them.”
But he noted that “whether it is AIDS or COVID-19, global cooperation and the resolve to invent the tools and get them out where they are most needed are critical.”
In June, the Gates Foundation pledged $7.4 billion to Gavi, a global vaccine alliance, to help immunization programs disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
During a virtual summit organized in the UK in June, Gates pledged $1.6 billion from his foundation to help finance vaccine distribution.
