Gates Foundation announced to give Rs 1150 crore to make Corona vaccine

"The Gates Foundation, under Bill and Melinda's leadership, has a reputation for investing in programs which are well-run and produce results", Graham said. "The world needs WHO now more than ever". The fund's objective is to create a larger corpus that can support up to 10 million people nationally. This theory, and others like it, point to a speech by Gates from the 2015 TED Conference where he said the biggest threat to humanity was a viral outbreak.

Especially since Gates has sharpened his comments about the White House's handling of the coronavirus in recent weeks.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation says northern Nigeria remains a high-risk region for the spread of COVID-19 due to its weak primary healthcare system.

The conspiracy theories about Gates may particularly damage what people think about a future coronavirus vaccine, said Claire Wardle, executive director of First Draft, an organisation that fights online disinformation.

YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, which also owns Instagram, said they were fighting coronavirus misinformation. The entire Gates Foundation does.

"Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them".

The newly announced funding builds on the 100 million dollars the foundation has committed to date to support the global response.

"That's why we are strong supporters of CEPI, the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations, and again, it was the experience of the search for vaccines for the Ebola virus after the experience in west Africa that actually helped precipitate the formation of CEPI which we helped form".

Bill Gates is now the favorite target for coronavirus misinformation according to data compiled by the New York Times and Zignal Labs, a company that analyzes media sources.

However, the vaccine was not related to the novel coronavirus but a different coronavirus that affects poultry, The Times said.

According to The Times, the surge in conspiracy theories blaming Gates seemed to correlate with prominent right-wing and anti-vaccination figures picking up the narrative.

Gates is not the only focus of conspiracy theories about the virus. He also criticized President Trump's decision to halt funding to the World Health Organization, though he didn't name Trump in his tweet.

Matshidiso Moeti, the regional director for Africa for WHO, said in a web briefing that the holding back of U.S. taxpayers' money would hurt a number of health projects in Africa including the highly successful campaign against polio. "We see a huge need, and that's why we have more than doubled our commitment", she said.
