Either we have to vaccinate in three phases, or we have to modify the vaccine, said the billionaire
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes that a third phase of vaccination may be needed for complete protection against the coronavirus, during which the patient will be injected with a vaccine tailored to the mutations in the virus.
“The main question now is whether we should provide universal vaccination with the available tools and methods, or we should vaccinate in three phases, or we should modify the vaccine,” he was quoted as saying by CBS on Wednesday, commenting on the situation with the coronavirus in the United States. states.
Vaccine manufacturers are already exploring the possibility of creating modified variants, so those who have already gone through two phases of vaccination may need a third. We will probably have an improved vaccine, so when these mutations reach the United States, we will be fully confident in protecting them. “
A new Gates book on tackling climate change, Climate Climate Avoidance: Available Solutions and Necessary Achievements, was released on Tuesday.
His publication was accompanied by a series of interviews with the founder of Microsoft to the American and world media, in which he commented not only on global warming, but also other challenges facing humanity.
“The New York Times criticized Gates’ book, writing that the ideas expressed there about obstacles to the fight against global warming are now significantly outdated.
Meanwhile, there is a growing fear of new coronavirus mutations in the United States. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who is considered a leading expert in the field, did not rule out earlier that existing vaccines may fail to protect against all variants of infection.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, in a speech to the UN Security Council on pandemic control, also did not rule out that the disease, defeated with the help of the vaccine, could return in the future if the mutation of the virus is not prevented.
