Bill Gates the American billionaire, founder of Microsoft revealed that if a Corona vaccine succeeds becomes ready soon, and is distributed properly on a large scale, then almost normal life may return to rich countries only by late 2021.
“By late next year, things can return to near normal,” Gates, 64, told the Wall Street Journal, adding: “We still don’t know whether these vaccines will work.”
“The distribution within the United States and between the United States and other countries will be the very main point of contention,” he added.
$ 36 billion aids from Gates
It is noteworthy that Gates had provided $ 36 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which aims to address extreme poverty and poor health care.
Last month, the foundation signed an agreement with 16 pharmaceutical companies that Gates said obligated them to expand manufacturing at an unprecedented speed and to ensure that vaccines, which were widely approved, were distributed as soon as possible.
His comments came at a time when two Corona vaccines developed by Pfizer / BioNTech and AstraZenka / University of Oxford are topping the list of major vaccines in the race for regulatory approval in the West.
In addition, the Director-General of the World Health Organization revealed that it is likely that a vaccine against Corona will be ready by the end of the year.
