Bill Gates Funded COVID-19 Vaccine Testing Starts Today
Not too log ago the world wondered if Bill Gates was stepping down from Microsoft because the company was in trouble. His response was that it was time for him to focus on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. If you ask me, Bill basically said I've made enough money, now I need to make a positive difference, now I need to leave a legacy behind. A month later Bill is putting his money where his mouth is and is moving faster than the government. Here are some bullet points from msn.
- Healthy volunteers in Philadelphia and Kansas City, Missouri, will begin to test an experimental coronavirus vaccine starting this week.
- The small Pennsylvania-based biotech Inovio Pharmaceuticals received regulatory clearance to begin testing. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with other nonprofits, have poured funding into Inovio's vaccine project.
- The biotech expects to have early safety data by late summer and is aiming to produce 1 million doses by the end of 2020.
Hats off to Bill and Melinda Gates.
