Gates needs to FUCK OFF!
The dipshit can’t keep a virus outta my computer and he thinks he can save all of humanity!
- Bill Gates continues his crusade against Trump’s false claim the U.S. has the best COVID-19 testing in the world
- Gates condemned testing in the U.S., which take up to weeks for results to show-up, as “worthless”
- He called the administration’s tests “garbage” and inequitable to low and middle class
Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates again harshly assailed President Donald Trump and his administration’s handling of COVID-19 testing, calling it the “most worthless” in the world.
Gates told CNN on Sunday it is “mind-blowing” the Trump Administration’s failure to provide prompt and affordable on-demand COVID-19 tests to all Americans. As for the tests results, Gates blasted them as slow, unreliable and unavailable to low- and middle-class Americans.
“You’re paying billions of dollars in this very inequitable way to get the most worthless test results of any country in the world……No other country has this testing insanity.”Bill Gates
Gates blames the Trump Administration’s early inaction on testing for allowing the virus to spiral out of control. The failure to quickly identify and isolate those infected with COVID-19 allowed the virus to spread unchecked and undetected.
The pandemic officially arrived in the U.S. on Jan. 20 with the first confirmed case. As of Sunday, the disease has infected 5.2 million Americans while killing 166,000 others, according to data from Worldometer. The first American death from the disease was announced Feb. 29.
With some 4% of the world’s population, the U.S. accounts for about a quarter of all cases and deaths. It leads the world in both categories.
“A variety of early missteps by the U.S. and then the political atmosphere meant that we didn’t get our testing going.”Bill Gates
Gates assailed the long lines at commercial testing labs six months into the pandemic and blasted unconscionable delays in obtaining test results. Some tests are taking up to two weeks before results are released, he said, and Americans “pay as much for the late result as the timely result.” Meanwhile, “very wealthy people have access to these quick-turnaround tests.”
“It’s mind-blowing that you can’t get the government to improve the testing because they just want to say how great it is,” Gates said in an attack on Trump’s claim America has the best testing in the world.
