Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and one of the richest people in the world, cited a period of success in preventing the Corona virus outbreak.
In an interview to Fox News, Bill Gates said that the situation would not be normal until vaccines against the Corona virus spread across the world.
He said, “We will gradually develop vaccines, but before that it can be possible to open up the sectors of the economy if the right measures are taken”.
He said the United States would have to pay huge economic costs to control the Corona virus outbreak.

Bill Gates described the Corona virus epidemic as a nightmare, but he also said the death toll in the United States could be lower than that predicted by US President Donald Trump and a few other medical experts.
“Things won’t get back to normal until we have got a vaccine out to basically the entire world” — Bill Gates joined Fox News’ Chris Wallace today to discuss his accurate prediction five years ago that the most deadly thing in our future would be a virus.

Donald Trump said yesterday that the coronary virus disease in the United States could cause Cod 19 to 100,000 to more than 40,000 deaths.
However, Bill Gates said, “If the social distance is done correctly, we can reduce the number of deaths.”
He said that it was very important to bring the statistics that the experts have estimated to the public as this would give people a sense of the seriousness of the situation.
As a result of the outbreak in the United States, close to 40,000 people have been affected and more than 8,000 have died, but the good news is that more than 17,000 have been able to defeat the disease.
According to Bill Gates, if people continue to exercise safe social distance and stay in Quarantine, the severity of the outbreak may be reduced by the end of April.
He said, “It is a nightmare-like scenario because the virus that affects the respiratory tract transmitted from one person to another is spreading at an alarming rate. The reduction in speed is not possible until most people are affected, which will result in a large number of people going to hospitals and infinite number of deaths. ‘
But he also said that although the Corona virus outbreak is very, very bad, it is not the worst, as the mortality rate is much lower than other diseases such as smallpox.
Earlier, Bill Gates had announced investment of billions of dollars to vaccinate against the Corona virus.
He said billions of dollars would be spent on the construction of factories for the seven best vaccines against the Corona virus.
Bill Gates said seven of the various vaccines that went through the preparation phase would be selected and factories built to manufacture them.
He said, “Although we will choose only 2 of them in the end, we will invest in building separate factories for all vaccines, which may cost billions of dollars but ultimately the most effective vaccine factory. Time will certainly be saved. ‘
He said that vaccine preparation and factory construction simultaneously are essential for rapid vaccine production.
In an article for the Washington Post recently, he said vaccine preparation can take up to 18 months, and some of the better-looking vaccines are now required for unique devices.
Bill Gates said: “We may spend a few billion dollars on construction of factories and eventually choose a better vaccine, but in the current situation, a few billion dollars is better than the trillions of dollars that have suffered economic losses.” ‘.
“We will avoid wasting several months like this because every month is precious,” he said.
Bill Gates called on the US government to ensure strict lockdown in every state.
They think a 10-week tight lockdown across the United States will help overcome the current crisis effectively.
