Large percentage of Americans believe Bill Gates vaccine conspiracyPosted by Annie May / May 25, 2020
What happens when you force a whole nation to stay in their homes, watch cable news, and read internet forums? Huge chunks of that population begin to believe in absurd conspiracy theories. How big, and how absurd? Try this on for size: 44% of Republicans believe that Bill Gates is going to use his vaccine to implant microchips that monitor their movements. Because…Globalists? The claim has been rejected, of course, (along with another conspiracy claiming Dr. Anthony Fauci wants people to carry vaccination certificates, which isn’t true) but that doesn’t matter.
The theories have heated up as Gates ramped up his vaccine efforts. Healthy volunteers are ready to begin testing a COVID vaccine funded by Bill Gates. It is the second such vaccine trial funded by Gates.
Bill Gates’s foundation has been pouring billions of dollars into factories for producing a COVID vaccine. There are currently seven promising vaccines, but only one or two will make the final cut. That means he’s funding seven factories, but at least five will not be used––and that means he’s wasting billions. But it’s a price he’s willing to pay to save lives.
“Because our foundation has such deep expertise in infectious diseases, we’ve thought about the epidemic, we did fund some things to be more prepared, like a vaccine effort,” he said. “Our early money can accelerate things.”
Hopefully Gates’s money will accelerate the world’s recovery, because things are getting worse. The United States now leads the world in the number of COVID cases.
