The COVID-19 pandemic changed the entire world in 2020, the reality is that the pandemic is not over yet and there is a long way to go and this is why Bill Gates published and essay that highlights three important factors that will save us next year.
The co-founder of Microsoft, who has the strange distinction of having also been the person who practically predicted all this that has been happening, has just published what he thinks will happen in 2021.
- PC sales will continue to grow as a result of the pandemic
- What do we know about the new variant of SARS-CoV-2?
- Google will inform you when the COVID-19 vaccines are available in your area
Apart from marking a pessimistic scenario we see the opposite in his point of view. All thanks to three key elements. Vaccinations, teamwork, and less complicated tests.
Through his official blog, GatesNotes, Bill Gates has published an extensive article, where he points out three key factors that will help us advance in the fight against the COVID-19.
Bill Gates even gave a road map to fight COVID-19
We can summarize the variables according to Bill Gates in this short essential list that will define our next year:
- We need all the efficient vaccines that we can reach.
- Cooperation of the entire pharmaceutical industry and the logistics chain that distributes the doses is the key.
- The development of less invasive and easier to do tests is really important.
Basically, Bill Gates describes the Pfizer vaccine and all the others with the same attack scheme. Pfizer says their vaccine’s efficiency rate exceeds 95%.
He points out that the pharmaceutical companies, laboratories, and research institutes have cooperated hand in hand to develop much larger production chains than anyone would have expected.
Increasing the volume of production is essential, otherwise, it could take decades to cover the entire population needed. And the fact that there are new tests for detecting COVID-19 which are cheaper, less intrusive, and can be applied at home by anyone, will help detect and cut chains of infection.
