Bill Gates says multiple vaccine doses will be needed and schools should stay closed for another YEAR until fall 2021. Speaking with Norah O’Donnell, Gates said he still had faith in the development of a vaccine.
However, he warned it could take an “unbelievably big number” of doses to beat the virus.
“None of the vaccines at this point appear like they’ll work with a single dose.”
“That was the hope at the very beginning.”
Gates also described the closures of schools as the “biggest cost” of the pandemic after deaths as he said classes likely won’t be all back until fall 2021. “This next academic year does hang in the balance. It is extremely important.”
