Microsoft founder, tycoon and philanthropist Bill Gates warns of what he called "vaccine art," and calls for marketing the future Corona virus vaccines to states and people who need them, rather than "for the price." Among other things, Gates said, "The vaccines against the corona, once they are, should not be purchased by the rich countries at the expense of other places in the world where the vaccine is much needed."

Gates' second-richest warning in the world comes mainly from the fact that already in the current phase of the Corona, wealthy states have bought all antiseptics and cures, as well as life-saving drugs such as RedMissibar, at the expense of other countries as they have created a lack of agent in the market. Which has hit weaker countries. This trend, all many health experts in the world, may intensify as soon as an initial vaccine is found for Corona. 

"There may be a reality where there will be a vaccine already, but it will not reach the countries and places where it is most needed because rich countries will initially buy all vaccines. This will cause the plague to be longer and harder and hurt more people," Gates warned, adding: In the world of leadership, you are responsible for distributing vaccines not by equity but by the true need of these vaccines. "

The European Commission and the World Health Organization have warned of unhealthy competition in the vaccine fight, which is seen as a key to saving lives and resolving global economic chaos following the outbreak of the epidemic, while some Washington officials have indicated they will seek to prioritize US citizens when the appropriate vaccine is found.

On July 6, the World Health Organization announced that progress had been made in research into finding a vaccine for the virus, and that 21 different vaccines were now being tested on human volunteers for mass drug development.

And there is a reason why Gates has become one of the most prominent explorers of the plague. In 2015, in a TED lecture, Gates talked about the next disaster that would hit humanity and not be a nuclear war, but a deadly virus. "If something kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it's most likely to be a highly contagious virus, not a war. We are not prepared for the next epidemic, "he said. And Gates not only foresaw the plague, but also the way it would spread and must have sounded like an apocalyptic narrative to us at the same time. "Maybe it will be a virus that the infected patients will feel well enough to get on a plane or go to the market," he added.
