Bill Gates has described as “crazy rumours” and “ironic”, the several conspiracy theories linking him to the festering coronavirus pandemic which is ravaging the world.
Responding directly to the conspiracy theories which cite him as the creator of COVID-19, allegedly, as part of a sinister agenda to reduce the population of the world, the billionaire philanthropist, whose Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is at the forefront of developing a vaccine against the respiratory disease, told Chinese broadcast channel CCTV’s Bai Yansong in a televised interview on GCTN: “I’d say it’s ironic that you take someone who’s doing their best to get the world ready and putting, in my case, billions of dollars into these tools for infectious diseases, and really trying to solve broadly infectious diseases including those that cause pandemics”.
“But we’re in a crazy situation, so, there’s going to be crazy rumours”, the Microsoft co-founder, who has committed $250 million to fighting the virus and creating a vaccine against it, said.
The conspiracies, which started in late January this year, are rooted in Mr Gates’ 2015 TED Talk, at which he warned that a failure by the world to learn lessons from the ebola episode, could mean the globe could be caught unawares by the next pandemic.
“The failure to prepare could allow the next epidemic to be dramatically more devastating than Ebola,” Mr Gates warned at the time, foretelling: “You can have a virus where people feel well enough while they’re infectious that they get on a plane, or they go to a market” – a description that very well fits COVID-19.
His front role in battling COVID-19 has also fuelled the romour mill with President Donald Trump’s ex-aide Roger Stone suggested suggesting in a recent publication by the New York Post that Mr Gates may have had a hand in the creation of COVID-19 so that he could plant microchips in people’s heads to know who has and has not been tested for it.
“Whether Bill Gates played some role in the creation and spread of this virus is open for vigorous debate. I have conservative friends who say it’s ridiculous and others say absolutely,” Stone told Joe Piscopo, host of the radio programme “The Answer” on 970 AM, who had asked about the conspiracy theories regarding the pandemic.
“He and other globalists are using it for mandatory vaccinations and microchipping people so we know if they’ve been tested. Over my dead body. Mandatory vaccinations? No way, Jose!” Stone told said.
Prior to that, Infowars published a piece that said the Gates Foundation “co-hosted a pandemic exercise in late 2019 that simulated a global coronavirus outbreak.”
Productivityhub.org provided some answers on that after people raised suspicions about the exercise and the timing of the coronavirus outbreak.
It said: “In October 2019 (only a few months before the apparition of COVID-19) the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (in cooperation with the World Economic Forum) hosted Event 201, a 3.5-hour table-top simulation of a global pandemic. Oddly enough, this simulation was about a novel coronavirus that would kill millions. About eight weeks later, an actual novel coronavirus spurred in China. This lead to some people wondering if this exercise actually predicted the spread of COVID-19. In response to these questions, a statement was posted on the Event 201 website”.
That statement said: “In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China.
“To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modelled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic.
“We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modelling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.
“On March 13th, about a day after COVID-19 began shutting down the entire Western world, Bill Gates stepped down from the public board of Microsoft to ‘dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health and development, education, and climate change’. As the pandemic spread across the world, Gates became an outspoken and authoritative figure on the pandemic crisis, appearing all over mass media to share his views and recommendations”.
“On March 18th, Bill Gates took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit titled I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. AMA about COVID-19. where he answered questions about the pandemic. In one of his answers, Gates referred to a ‘digital certificate’ to keep track of who got vaccinated”.
The conspiracy theorists have latched onto the idea of a hypothetical “digital certificate” that Mr Gates spoke of, to fuel suspicion about the Gates’ vaccine programme.
The conspiracy theories even sparked a White House petition to investigate Mr Gates for “crimes against humanity” and “medical malpractice”.
The “We the People” petition asked the federal government to call on Congress to investigate the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, stating: “Congress and all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.“
The petition, created on April 10, reached the threshold of 100,000 signatures within days.

As we look at events surrounding the “COVID-19 pandemic,” various questions remain unanswered. On Oct. 18th of 2019, only weeks prior to ground zero being declared in Wuhan, China, two major events took place. One is “Event 201,” the other is the “Military World Games,” held in none other than Wuhan. Since then a worldwide push for vaccines & biometric tracking has been initiated.
At the forefront of this is Bill Gates, who has publicly stated his interest in “reducing population growth” by 10-15%, by means of vaccination. Gates, UNICEF & WHO have already been credibly accused of intentionally sterilising Kenyan children through the use of a hidden HCG antigen in tetanus vaccines.
Congress & all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.
