Founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates believes Coronavirus tests are a ‘complete waste.’
According to the Billionaire, the amount of time it takes for test results to come back means they don’t achieve the purpose for which they were carried out, which is a timely isolation of the patient before spread of the disease begins.
“The simplest thing, which has to do with such insanity, is you should not reimburse somebody for getting a test that it takes more than 48 hours to get the result back,” he said in an interview with CNBC.
“That test is a complete waste. And to all these numbers about how much we test, the majority is just complete waste,” Bill Gates added.
Adm. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health at the US Department of Health and Human Services, agrees with Bill Gates that testing needs to be improved.
Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to treatment and vaccine research for Covid-19.
