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)

The full op-ed is below. We’ll let readers be the …
