Bill Gates Says Most COVID Tests Are ‘Garbage’

Bill Gates doesn’t think much of our current coronavirus testing methods. In an interview with Wired, Gates said that “the majority of all U.S. tests are completely garbage” and take too long to get results.

Gates has been heavily involved in efforts to combat the virus, and helped fund a testing program he says is faster and more efficient.

He also believes the coronavirus is “very vaccine-preventable”, but warns that “3-4 months of Phase 3 testing” is needed for the vaccines currently in development. He also says remdesivir and dexamethasone treatments have been effective.

Do you trust the current coronavirus testing methods? Have you been tested?
