Overseas Network, June 26, Bill Gates, co-chairman of the US Gates Foundation, predicted in an interview that if unrestrained behavior, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 will increase significantly in October and November.
According to a report by CNN on the 25th, Gates said in an online interview, “If we do not restrict our behavior more strictly, then in October and November, the new crown virus will “return”, The number of infections will increase significantly.”
Gates also said that the number of deaths due to COVID-19 in the United States is still rising, which shows that the United States’ efforts to fight the epidemic are “not enough.” Gates also expressed disappointment at the lack of leadership of the United States in the global response to the epidemic, which has led to severe epidemics in developing countries such as Brazil and India. “The United States has not given you the leadership information or coordination work you expect.”
Gates said he currently regularly talks with Anthony Fudge, the top infectious disease expert in the United States. “I talk to him more often than he talks to other people. He is great.” In terms of the vaccine schedule, Gates said he agrees with Fudge’s prediction that he will be at the end of this year or early 2021. There will be a viable vaccine.

The second wave of the COVID-19 epidemic has become an established fact. Although the number of new infections in early epidemic centres such as New York State is steadily declining, several large population states in the southern and western United States have recently set new records for diagnosis.
