People quickly developed numerous explanations regarding what led to the coronavirus’s rapid spread when the first cases of the disease started to show up. The idea that Bill Gates, the creator of Microsoft, was responsible for the coronavirus caught people off guard among all the bizarre conspiracies that were circulating at the time. Even Gates was surprised by what he was learning about himself. Nearly two years after the rumours about him first surfaced, Gates has finally spoken out about the accusations.
A brief about Bill Gates is allegedly responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a statement from a Microsoft co-founder
Bill Gates claimed that some of the information he learned about himself during the Covivirus outbreak startled him. He claimed that people were “searching for a boogeyman” to hold responsible for all the wrongdoing in the world. Tens of millions of letters claimed that I deliberately started the pandemic or that I was following people. It’s true that I work with vaccines, but I do so to save lives, he said in an interview with journalist Amol Rajan that was published by the BBC.
“I believe people are searching for the overly straightforward explanation or the ‘boogeyman’ behind the curtain. Biology is more harder to comprehend than malice, he said.
Gates made light of the fact that he was more specifically targeted than Anthony Fauci, a former principal medical counsellor to the US president. He continued by saying that while he was involved in the Covid-19 vaccination effort, he was completely unrelated to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Gates had previously issued a warning about a contagious virus that has the potential to kill over 10 million people back in 2015. He had remarked during a TEDx conference that “if anything kills over 10 million people over the next few decades, it is likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than war.” When Gates’ forecast came true, though, some were quick to blame him for the virus.
Conspiracy theorists claimed that vaccinations are a method of sterilising the populace and that the covid pandemic was part of Bill Gates’s plan to eradicate humanity. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram were being used to disseminate these notions. The bogus videos continued to circulate despite the efforts made by the Meta-owned applications to stop them, despite the social media platforms’ best efforts.
