"It’s Super Painful" – Bill Gates Urges 10-Week Nationwide Lockdown

“This is kind of the nightmare scenario.”

Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates was heard on CNN Global Town Hall on Thursday (March 26) as saying six to ten weeks of lockdowns across the country is now necessary to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

“It is super painful to drive this very high degree of social isolation I call shutdown. The middle course really isn’t there because it’s hard to say, oh, go back to the theater for a week maybe or maybe not you’ll be infected or infecting people,” Gates said.

“Until we get the certainty we’ve hit these low numbers, you know, I doubt even if you told people that they should be buying new houses and cars and hanging out in restaurants, I doubt they’re going to want to do that. People want to protect older people,” he said.

“This is kind of the nightmare scenario,” he said as to what is currently unfolding across the US. As of Saturday morning, there are 105,000 confirmed virus cases and 1,711 deaths. The epicenter of the breakout is New York, with more than 46,000 cases.

Gates said the response in the US was slow and chaotic. He said if the government would have “behaved a little bit like the countries that have done the best on this one” – then maybe the spread could have been suppressed.

He warned that the “peak” in cases and deaths is not close, indicating that further lockdowns will be needed to flatten the curve and slowdown infections to avoid hospital systems from being overwhelmed.

“Basically, the whole country needs to do what was done in the part of China where they had these infections,” he added.

And to Gate’s point about where the US is in the virus cycle. We noted last week that the US is in the acceleration period.

Gates has been warning about a pandemic for years. Back in 2015, he told the audience at a TED Talk that his greatest fear wasn’t World War III, but rather a fast-spreading virus that would consume the world.

Gates was a part of The Event 201 scenario in October (months before Covid-19) that modeled an outbreak of coronavirus across the world, killing 65 million people by month 18.

His foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has been pouring millions of dollars into developing and distributing at-home testing kits for COVID-19.

So what do we expect after the nationwide lockdown? Well, Harvard researchers believe “intermittent lockdowns” and “widespread surveillance” of Americans could become the norm through 2022.

One more prove that virus was made by human. If Bill Gates was talking about it and preparing in October 2019, it means they new and they done it. They should be in courts answering questions for what they done.

TRUTH
Manufacturing and farming has become so automated, that if the rich gave up their wealth and profit until this plague was over, everyone could achieve the social distancing needed and still enjoy a comfortable life.
Surely, Carona-virus is the best thing that ever happened in our battle to overcoming global warming and the root cause — over-production and over consumption.

Here are some interesting comments from scientists who do not promote the current COVID-19 narrative:

The world’s politicians and media are not presenting us with a balanced viewpoint of the seriousness of the current pandemic, voicing only the narrative that the 2019 – 2020 version of the novel coronavirus is unprecedented and extremely deadly.

Nothing is right, just or harmless about the fake morality of ownership. For if nothing could be owned, allowing everyone to have enough for a comfortable life, no one could control us or gain anything by killing us.

How about the fake morality of “non-ownership” you are espousing? I see right through you and will keep my ownership rights — completely. Utopia is always the perennial project that the blind Left keeps bubbling away on their tiny back burners. In a socialist state, we would not even own our very own bodies. Isn’t that what Gates and Co. would love and are aiming for? You already live in a bubble without freedom since you do nothing except read from your script of talking points. That is very much how the Left has operated in academia, for decades. Well,… Read more »

Not honest of you to defend the religion of ownership by stating not one thing good in defense of it. For your blackout on what is good about ownership, establishes for a fact that you know that such an evil thing can have absolutely nothing good.
For we are all born with a different level of intelligence, which makes it impossible to achieve equality, when such a greed driven morality controls society.

That’s right — we are all, and will remain always, UNequal. Our real working circumstances will therefore remain personal and internal, more than objective and external. Nothing is absolute — that is what will always guarantee real freedom. As for ownership rights — the body belongs to the soul, and no one or no thing else. Justice begins from a realization of that truth.

The only ones doing manual labor for a living being the 50% working-poor, what is so “super painful” about giving them a paid vacation during this plague?
For everyone enriching themselves upon the misery of the laboring-class, surely a fake morality that has to end.

Government, mainstream media and the rich, they all desire above all things that Trump remain in power until 2024. And so, the Democrat Party must run the worst possible candidate against Trump and Biden is perfect for the job.

I don’t understand why anyone would even listen to Bill Gates about health issues . It is well known that his father was a leading eugenics freak and his twat of a son has taken it over . He stole the original software to start Microsoft who are a shite company anyway .

Thanks, Bill. Now, shut up.
It must be easy for a multibillionaire to stop a nation’ economy, wreck it, then sit back and watch it try to recover for the next 10 years.
How about this, take about 50 billion and funnel it to companies to produce PPE gear, provide relief for the unemployed, and so much more.
The rich have the world right back where they want it, under their boot heel.

When Bill Gates can prevent Microsoft systems from getting a “virus” then….I might listen to his health warnings!
