The vaccinated American billionaire believes that the mandatory wearing of masks will continue until winter.
The founder of Microsoft and the richest man in the world, Bill Gates, suggested that some restrictive measures introduced against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic could be weakened or canceled by the end of this spring. This was announced on Friday, February 26, by CNBC.
вЂњOnly by the end of spring or by summer will we be able to reach the numbers by which we can significantly change our behavior,вЂќ the billionaire predicted.
At the same time, 65-year-old Gates, who has already received two doses of the COVID vaccine, said that he would not stop wearing masks, despite being vaccinated. According to him, this precaution will still be needed вЂ” right up to winter.
вЂњI'm not going to stop wearing masks or being careful, especially with older people who have not been vaccinated,вЂќ he said.
Earlier, Bill Gates said that full protection against a new type of coronavirus infection may require a third dose of the vaccine, which will contain a drug modified to take into account the mutations of the virus.
As reported, the World Health Organization said the COVID-19 pandemic will end in early 2022.
