Bill Gates Says COVID Vaccines Are Missing These 2 Things

( Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and a philanthropist who has donated billions of dollars to vaccine development and distribution all over the world over the last decade, recently said that current COVID-19 vaccines aren’t durable enough and that they need to be better at preventing COVID-19 infection.

Yeah, no kidding. They’re finally admitting that the vaccines don’t work, now?

Gates, who donated $1.75 billion to the development of the current COVID vaccine and other measures designed to manage the global pandemic, recently made the comments during a Twitter discussion with Devi Sridhar from the University of Edinburgh Medical School. His comments are basically identical to the kind of thing that many Republicans have been saying for the last year, as the vaccine efficacy gradually reduced.

When asked about what could be done now to make the biggest difference in the pandemic, Gates said that the vaccines currently being used “prevent severe disease and death very well but they are missing two key things.”

Careful, Bill. Twitter might ban you for spreading “misinformation”…

First, Gates said, is that the vaccines still allow for breakthrough infections and that the duration of effectiveness “appears to be limited.”

Again, this is something that many Twitter users have already been banned for accurately stating.

“We need vaccines that prevent re-infection and have many years of duration,” he said.

The comments came as the Omicron variant of COVID continues its sweep of the United States and the rest of the world, accounting for more than 98.3% of new infections domestically, according to a study from the University of Copenhagen. The variant is significantly less deadly than earlier variants, while being much more infectious.

The United States passed the milestone of one million new infections in 24 hours earlier this month, a sign that we could be heading to herd immunity much more quickly than we were during the spread of the Alpha and Delta variants.

By the time new vaccines come out, perhaps the virus will have already finished sweeping its way across the entire population.
