Bill Gates on a COVID-19 Vaccine: Equitable Access & the End to the Pandemic

Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, delivers a video message at the high-level side event Accelerating the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This event hosted by The World Health Organization (WHO), the United Kingdom, South Africa, and the UN Secretary-General aims to build stronger political consensus for a coordinated global response to COVID-19 and champion the importance and urgency of equitable access to new tools, especially effective vaccines. It also seeks to catalyze a step-change in support for the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator (ACT-A), the most promising solution for global equitable access to the tools needed to accelerate the end of the pandemic.
-------
The Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, is a groundbreaking global collaboration to accelerate development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines.

There is no time to waste in the fight against COVID-19.
No-one is safe until everyone is safe.

Launched at the end of April 2020, at an event co-hosted by the Director-General of the World Health Organization, the President of France, the President of the European Commission, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator brings together governments, scientists, businesses, civil society, and philanthropists and global health organizations (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CEPI, FIND, Gavi, The Global Fund, Unitaid, Wellcome, the WHO, and the World Bank).

Bill Gates thinks COVID-19 pandemic will end by 2022 once vaccines are distributed

빌 게이츠 내년 백신 보급, 코로나 2022년 끝날 것

Microsoft founder Bill Gates says he thinks the COVID-19 pandemic could end by 2022 if vaccines are distributed by early next year.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Gates said the current situation could be overcome within the next two years, claiming vaccines will likely be available globally by next summer.
He said that, even with the distribution of just 60 percent of the vaccines, the spread should be slowed considerably.
Gates said that, if appropriate countermeasures are not taken, the number of deaths worldwide could rise in the latter half of this year.

Bill Gates criticizes U.S. Covid-19 response: Most governments listen to their scientists

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, criticized the U.S. response to the coronavirus, telling CNBC the nation ranks “quite low compared to other countries” in executing testing and delivering a clear message on safe social practices such as wearing masks. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

Without mentioning Trump, Gates said that unlike the U.S., many countries have “done very, very well” using the behavioral tools available to help blunt the spread of the coronavirus. The founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which works to tackle complex global health challenges, said it has nothing to do with politics.

“That’s a purely technical thing, not a political thing. Most governments take advantage of their scientists and listen to them. They don’t undermine them and attack them,” he said. “Mask compliance in the United States is quite poor. And yet the cost of the mask and the productivity lost from [not wearing] the mask, it’s quite an intervention.”

Gates also pointed out that social measures such as masks, social distancing and hand-washing are the primary tools to fight Covid-19 until “therapeutics or vaccines get out there in big numbers.”

Bill Gates: There could be a 'substantial' reduction in Covid-19 death rate by year's end

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates spoke with CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin about the coronavirus vaccine and treatment study results thus far and which efforts out there he thinks show the most promise. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates said therapeutic drugs to treat the coronavirus could reduce the death rate substantially this year but a vaccine will be crucial to bringing back a sense of normalcy to the society.

“You can see the therapeutic benefit faster than the protective benefit,” Gates said in an interview that aired Tuesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “So I think there’s a good chance we’ll have substantial death-rate reduction by the end of the year with the combination of those new tools.”

The Microsoft co-founder and co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation said remdesivir was one of the leading treatments in the therapeutic research. Remdesivir is an antiviral drug from Gilead Sciences that has shown to have reduced the risk of death for severely sick Covid-19 patients by 62% compared with standard care alone.

Gates said there are two other antivirals that scientists are looking into, which can be administered orally instead of being injected with an IV like the remdesivir treatment.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced plans in February to donate $100 million to vaccine research and treatment efforts for the coronavirus as part of the World Health Organization’s request for $675 million in contributions to fight the spread of the virus. In June, the foundation pledged an additional $1.6 billion to the Gavi vaccine alliance, an organization focused on efforts to immunize children amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Also I’d say monoclonal antibodies are probably the most promising class. ...You have people like Regeneron, Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca doing some pretty strong work,” Gates told Andrew Ross Sorkin in the in Monday’s interview.

Even though these new therapeutics will significantly help coronavirus patients suffering from severe symptoms, he said it won’t “drive us back to complete normalcy.”

“Until you really block transmission, have long periods of time without anybody going in the hospital, the concern is going to be there,” he said.

Several pharmaceutical companies have been testing their potential vaccines in clinical trials with some entering late-stage human trials in a race to win regulatory approval before the end of 2020.

U.S. drugmaker Pfizer and German biotech company BioNTech announced Monday that they just began their late-stage human trial. Earlier this month, they said one of their four vaccine candidates produced neutralizing antibodies, which researchers believe is necessary to build immunity to the virus, in all participants who received two of the 10 or 30 microgram doses.

Last week, Pfizer and BioNTech received $1.95 billion in funding from the U.S. government to produce and deliver 100 million doses of their vaccine if it proves safe and effective.
