This was a mistake.
In a recent interview with CBS News, Microsoft founder Bill Gates claimed that President Trump and his administration made serious mistakes with their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Breitbart, Gates stated, “Why wasn’t there a federal testing plan? Why didn’t we get the turn around on the testing down? Why aren’t we getting tests out to low-income, minority communities? Serious mistakes were made.”
He then said, “The U.S. had the lowest compliance with masks use of any country. Didn’t have the leadership message there.”
Adding, “Some of the policies were a mistake. Opening up bars – the economic benefit versus the infection risk – a lot of activities like that made it a mistake. So now, in most of the U.S., we need to absolutely avoid those things. We need to distance. We need to use masks. We’ve seen that in Europe they had the dramatic falloff. It didn’t spread into other communities. Their leadership communicated with a clear voice. Their scientists were encouraged to go on TV rather than banned, and their population benefited. The death rate in those countries has gone down very dramatically.”
