Microsoft founder Bill Gates admitted that he regularly speaks with Dr. Anthony Fauci about the spread of coronavirus.
Reports on Thursday found Gates and Fauci recently discussed so-called COVID variants and ways to impose more restrictions on the general population. Gates said COVID vaccines will need to be changed, which requires additional funding for pharmaceutical companies.
The two have been criticized for allegedly spreading panic, supporting excessive lockdowns and increasing government and corporate control.
“Both myself and Dr. Fauci featured in conspiracy theories, like you know one says Dr. Fauci is trying to make money off of vaccines,” Gates said.
Over the past year, Gates increased his fortune by $18.3 billion, or almost 20 percent. This happened due to COVID lockdowns and a rise of online commerce and entertainment.
