Bill Gates thinks COVID-19 will look like seasonal flu after omicron surge

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Billionaire Bill Gates tweeted his thoughts on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and what steps can be taken to make it more manageable this year.

Bill Gates is known for accurately warning the world of an impending pandemic.

As the number of COVID cases began to rise, Gates called Omicron the worst part of the pandemic.

Speaking to renowned global public health expert Professor Devi Sridhar, Gates stated that if we take the right action, the pandemic could end in 2022.

The first of these measures is vaccines, which not only reduce the severity of the disease, but also stop the infection in its path.

Gates also lamented the fact that even such large organizations as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lack the resources to identify the impending pandemic and inform the world about it.

On the main issue, Gates saw a glimmer of hope in the rise in infections due to the Omicron strain. The billionaire hopes current infections will create lasting immunity by 2022 and treat Covid-19 like seasonal flu.
