[Ed. – What Gates says doesn’t even make sense. And he gets away with offering no justification for any of his claims. He really, really wants to do the contact tracing; i.e., the intrusive tracking of your every move to predict and interdict new hot spots. The “interdict” part means controlling where you are. Gates brings it up at every opportunity, although he rarely makes explicit the part about exerting control over you, if contact tracing is to have any real prophylactic purpose.]
Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta in a Coronavirus Town Hall, Gates said the fact that people are still dying in the US today shows that the country is “not even close” to doing enough to fight the pandemic.
“It’s possible to ramp up testing for a new pathogen very, very fast,” he said.
“In fact a number of countries did that extremely well in this case and the technology keeps getting better there. The US in particular hasn’t had the leadership messages or coordination that you would have expected.”
Gates dismissed the White House’s claim that an increase in case numbers is a direct result of an increase in testing, calling it “completely false.”
