Gates also said the U.S. handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is “disappointing,” and the country is at “the back of the pack” on diagnostics and messaging.

  1. Because we know it's (ALL a LIE) – The Hospitals are not filling up with CV19 patients, and the PCR Test Numbers are FAKE (Proof COVID-19 PCR Tests are FRAUD) Over 20 cycles give false positives (the CDC says over 33 cycles are useless, and Dr. Fauci says over 34 is useless) > The PCR Tests in the United States are set at 37-45 cycles "mostly 40-45 cycles" – meaning (All Cases based on this test are meaningless and useless) 100% FRAUD ~Yet, Fauci has not said a word about the FAKE PCR Tests driving the Numbers. Proof Links available for anyone interested, including Video of Fauci saying over 35 are meaningless. BONUS – Video of Global Court Case by Lawyer Reiner Füllmich > over the FAKE PCR Test

  2. What he's saying is right in other countries is actually wrong. The Coronavirus pandemic is more like a year long flu season. If it were worse, whats happened would be warranted. Come to think about it, Gates is part of why the pandemic was poorly handled in the US. The number one rule of any crisis is dont panic. That doesn't change regardless of the crisis. Gates and the American Left stirred up panic from the beginning. Now, they're using dubious claims of hospitalization to imply severity and necessity. The usage of resources has been the single most wrongly done thing in the pandemic. Churches could've been made into makeshift hospitals, theres different ways to increase hospital capacity, people were motivated by fear to begin hoarding basic things, there could've been allowance for people to have access to medicines they otherwise would typically need a prescription for, and a lot of other things.

    Theres a much worse pandemic sweeping the globe and it has been going on for a while. Eleutherophobia is spreading like a wildfire. People have developed a neurological disorder regarding choosing. Its now to the point a kind of confirmation bias is rooted in people where they associate the loss of choices with a perceived benefit that doesn't actually exist. Common sense is destroyed when people don't use it and it was the best way to deal with Coronavirus. There doesn't need to be shutdowns, and mandatory face masks, and distancing imposed, driven by panic. Theres also no quantifying benefits from it in America by comparison. America is not Europe, or Australia, or Brazil, or the Middle East. Don't compare America to other countries, and regions, so significantly different, especially when factors like being islands and lacking resources come into play. The claim that somehow we're doing good by having mandates and loosing our liberties, rather than using actual scientific processes, involving test and control groups, aren't based in logic, rather they reflect more of a neurological or psychological defect or disorder.

    Coronavirus warranted such measures, and such loss of personal liberties, people wouldn't be out protesting, rioting, and looting, they would be too sick, if not dead. None of what I've said should be construed to mean such measures would be wrong under other circumstances involving a worse virus or bacteria. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER! should logical fallacies be promoted as fact in science.NEVER!

  3. Thanks to Bill Gates, a wealthy man who is using his wealth to help the world, who has been working around the world to vaccinate against deadly disease, who is knowledgeable about responding to epidemics because he is not going to just waste his wealth, who puts his money where his mouth is, who has a certain amount of authority on the subject, thanks for speaking up sir!
