In relevant internet forums one reads again and again that he is said to be behind all this. “Bill Gates wants to manipulate us with the vaccinations,” it says there. After all, the software inventor is one of the big beneficiaries of the corona pandemic. Gates himself can only laugh at these allegations.
“It’s bizarre to think that I started this, could benefit from it, or be keen on knowing people’s whereabouts, which is why I put 5G monitors in the vaccine,” Gates joked in an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”. . With such conspiracy theories, it is difficult for the Microsoft founder to remain serious. Gates hopes it’s a very, very small group of people and sanity returns. “The real tragedy is that these false rumors can lead to people not getting vaccinated.”
But Gates is also serious. He says he actually thought the pandemic would bring people together. For him, the main reason for the division in society was the frustrating disinformation. This would have turned people against each other. Corona would have given us so much reason to be happy. Gates is happy about the success of mRNA technology or the superhuman commitment of healthcare workers. Disinformation destroyed all of that. “We’re going to be talking about disinformation for a while, and I’ll never understand why I was singled out for the role of scapegoat,” Gates said.
In general, the mask or vaccination policy is much more controversial than Gates had expected. We still have every reason to be happy. “We were lucky, it could have been ten times as deadly,” Gates said. “Many people, including me, were warned of the considerable risk and informed about countermeasures.”
