Bill Gates is a source of inspiration for many, and when tech history is published, he’ll go down as one of the legends that created our modern world.
His level of commitment and engagement seems remarkable from what he has managed to achieve and accomplish in the tech world and what he is doing in the field of philanthropy nowadays.
Recently, however, a lot of conspiracy theories surrounded him, some saying it was Bill Gates who is personally behind the COVID-19 pandemic.
A recent Forbes study reported that conspiracy theorists claim that Gates holds the “patent” for the SARS-CoV2, a virus that only appeared in January 2020, and that all this pandemic is intended to establish a need for a vaccine from which Gates eventually will benefit.
These posts say that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which owns the patent for this new coronavirus, has sponsored The Pirbright Institute, in Surrey, England. The study further clarifies, however, that the patent is actually for another coronavirus, one that specifically affects chickens, not the SARS-CoV2.
