Gates Gives a Gloomy Picture for Normal World

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Technology tycoon and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has given a gloomy picture for the world looking to get to normal after being hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Gates said life can get back to normal only when a second generation of COVID-19 vaccines is widely available and the virus is eradicated worldwide – a higher bar than was set for any disease in history. “The only way we’ll get completely back to normal is by having, maybe not the first generation of vaccines, but eventually a vaccine that is super-effective, and that a lot of the people take, and that we get the disease eliminated on a global basis,” Gates said Sunday in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press program.
