(RoyalPatriot.com )- Is billionaire Bill Gates breaking up with the COVID vaccines?
Last week, during a brief Twitter chat with host Devi Sridhar, chair of global public health at the Edinburgh University Medical School, the Microsoft co-founder and vaccine cheerleader admitted that the COVID vaccines do not prevent the transmission of COVID.
Gates said the COVID vaccines might help, but they only slightly reduce transmission, arguing that we need a vaccine that prevents infection and offers long-term protection from the virus.
Gates also said that wealthy countries caused harm when they hoarded the “limited supply” of COVID vaccines last year.
How many people were banned from social media for making the same observations Bill Gates did last week in a Twitter chat?
Last summer, former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson was permanently suspended from Twitter for saying the COVID vaccines have limited efficacy and didn’t stop transmission or infection.
Only a month ago, Twitter banned claims that vaccinated people could spread or shed the virus to unvaccinated people. When the policy change received blowback, Twitter claimed the word “virus” was supposed to be “vaccine” which makes zero sense.
The Gates Foundation has committed $1.75 billion to the global COVID response, including $250 million to the continued development of vaccines, tests, and drugs and “ensure equitable, timely, and scaled delivery.”
But Bill Gates’ low opinion of the mRNA vaccines is quite an about-face.
When the vaccines were first made available, the Gates Foundation expressed delight that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were 95 percent effective. Lynda Stuart, who heads up the Gates Foundation’s COVID-19 Discovery and Transnational Vaccine Response team, boasted in November 2020 that the foundation invested $55 million in Pfizer partner BioNTech in 2019 for its mRNA vaccine technology. Stuart proclaimed mRNA vaccines showed much promise.
However, Gates isn’t the only one admitting these vaccines aren’t the cure-all they were initially claimed to be.
Last week, Pfizer CEO Albert Fourla admitted that its COVID vaccine offers “very limited protection if any” from the Omicron variant. He told Yahoo Finance that booster shots offer “reasonable protection against hospitalizations and deaths,” but little protection against infection.
When a video of the interview appeared on Twitter, Yahoo Finance filed a takedown notice, citing copyright violations, preventing the clip from appearing on Twitter.
