“We can get the whole country, every city back in school. I think that’s achievable and a very important goal to have in mind,” Gates told CNN.
He spoke in some detail about the “daunting” work of distributing the vaccines which are round the corner.
“The urgency and the numbers are pretty daunting. You know if you end up with all today’s vaccines, we need over 10 billion doses to get to a high percentage of the world,” Gates said.
Gates’ remarks come at a time when the US is experiencing its worst coronavirus surge in months, with daily cases smashing records day after day. The US has the world’s highest coronavirus caseload and death toll.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has committed more than $350 million to support the global response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
