Bill Gates has said that he predicts the world will “be completely back to normal ” by the end of 2022.
Yes, on the one hand, the end of next year seems like a long time off right now, but the prospect of a comeback to complete normalcy feels like something we should be excited about, however patient we may have to be in the meantime.
Bill Gates predicts: return to normal by end of 2022
Speaking to the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza and television host TVN24, Gates, 65, said of the pandemic: “This is an incredible tragedy.” In his recently published book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and Breakthrough We Need, Gates argued that the pandemic has undone 25 years of progress in the study of disease.
The Microsoft co-founder writes: “Globally, Covid-19 has undone decades of progress on poverty and disease. As governments moved to deal with the pandemic, they had to divert people and money from other priorities, including vaccination programs.”
