Bill Gates Slams White House, Insists US Needs “National Social Isolation Policy” To Combat COVID-19

Bill Gates has been warning about the risk of a global pandemic for years. And since the novel coronavirus slammed the US, he’s been advocating a “super painful” 10-week national shutdown that has earned him plenty of criticism for being an out-of-touch billionaire (just like when he suggested that the biggest contributor to poverty in Africa was too many poor Africans being born)
And yesterday, Gates opened himself to critics once again by publishing an op-ed in the Washington Post where he obliquely criticized the Trump Administration’s approach to combating the virus, and suggested an alternative that sounded like something that might be possible in the world from The Jetsons.

He brings up other valid points too, echoing Andrew Cuomo’s criticism of the federal government essentially forcing states to bid for vital resources. And finally: Running more rapid trials to find effective treatments while drug companies race to find a vaccine (kind of like what was done here?)
The full op-ed is below. We’ll let readers be the …
