Pandemic expert Bill Gates didn’t know that COVID primarily affects the elderly

During an interview, renowned pandemic specialist Bill Gates claimed that he and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation didn’t realize COVID would practically pose zero risk to those who aren’t elderly.

“It wasn’t until early February when I was in a meeting that experts at the foundation said ‘there’s no way, there’s been too much travel without [a] diagnosis for us to contain this,’” Gates began.

“And then, at that point, we didn’t really understand the fatality rate. We didn’t understand that it’s a fairly low fatality rate and that it’s a disease mainly of the elderly — kind of like [various] flus, although a bit different than that.”

Of course, despite Bill Gates feigning negligence, what he’s saying now reflects what he said publicly in February 2020, right before he — and every Western health official — did a total 180 on the science and claimed that COVID was a danger to everyone.

“First, it can kill healthy adults in addition to elderly people with existing health problems,” Gates wrote at the time. “Second, Covid-19 is transmitted quite efficiently. The average infected person spreads the disease to two or three others — an exponential rate of increase.”

Not once did Gates mention that COVID-19 could pose a danger to those under 18. In fact, in July 2020, Gates said that the benefits of going to school outweighed the risks posed by COVID.

“I’m a big believer that for young children, the benefits in almost every location — particularly if you can protect the teachers well — the benefits outweigh the costs,” he said during an interview in July 2020.

Indeed, Gates didn’t change his tune until after the vaccines arrived, which, following his own logic, a slightly younger Gates wouldn’t have believed were necessary for healthy young people.
Nonetheless, despite Gates explicitly admitting that COVID mainly affects the elderly, Gates says he’s creating a pandemic “GERM” team that will monitor sovereign nations and recommend when they need to close the borders and restrict citizens’ rights.
