Bill Gates, the second richest man in the world has revealed four things governments across the world must do for life to become normal again.
Bill Gates who has been very outspoken and supportive since the outbreak of the virus has now recommended four things that must be done for life to “get back to normal”
The billionaire suggests various methods and strategies to advance current testing methods including at-home test kits and consistent standards involving who and who can get tested.
Gates also suggests that leaders follow the model Germany followed which involved Interviewing everyone who tests positive and using a detailed database to make sure they are followed up and watched closely.
This method lies on the fact that patients must provide accurate contacts to avoid wrong documentation and requires a lot of staff to follow up with everyone individually. Gates suggests technological apps can help with this.
3. Effective Treatment:
Dr Fauci, the US infectious disease expert expressed optimism about an experimental drug called remdesevir, which is still in its trial phase. Other drugs like hydroxychloroquine have received a lot of attention after Trump spoke of its effectiveness but are still being studied.
4. A Vaccine:
Many countries and companies around the world are working at break-neck speed to develop a vaccine faster — and there are promising signs. Gates is particularly excited about pursuing a new approach called an “RNA vaccine.”
He said: “Unlike a flu shot, which contains fragments of the influenza virus so your immune system can learn to attack them, an RNA vaccine gives your body the genetic code needed to produce viral fragments on its own,” So, once your body senses traces of the infection, it attacks it.
