Bill Gates during a conspiracy spiral
You probably did not miss it, the co-founder of Microsoft is the subject of a number of strange conspiracy theories linked to the pandemic. According to a YouGov poll published in May 2020, 28% of Americans believe, for example, in the idea that Bill Gates intends to rely on a mass vaccination campaign against Covid-19 to implant us with microchips used to monitor our every move .
Many people also think that a patent was filed in 2015 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the development of a vaccine against Covid-19.

Crazy and perverse

According to him, these have probably taken root in part because of fear related to the viral pandemic, combined with the rise of social networks.
Bill Gates has also expressed interest in exploring what lies behind these theories.“Do people really believe all of this stuff? “, he asks himself. “We’re really going to have to educate ourselves on that over the next year and try to understand how this changes people’s behavior, and how we should have minimized that.
Finally, Gates also wanted to congratulate Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health of the United States, which he considers as “smart people“And”wonderful“. He also said to himself “look forward to seeing them able to work effectively under President Joe Biden’s new administration ”.
