Bill Gates

I was impressed by an interview on CNN with Bill Gates, the humanitarian billionaire. Computing moved from the mainframe to the home under his watch. The personal computer became ubiquitous, a financial juggernaut. DOS and Windows were the forerunners, they untapped so many thinkers. Today Bill has turned his attention towards poverty in the third world. Many years ago Bill said a pandemic was a bigger threat than nuclear war. On CNN recently he said we should first manage the Coronavirus and only then fix the economy, health is a priority. The virus also threatens the third world where social distancing is not possible, and medical services nonexistent. 

For Coronavirus we first need to stop the increase of infection, and then work on a cure. To stop the increase we should look to successful countries like China, South Korea and Germany where they have controlled the increase. Bill is a rich man and economy also important to him but I think we should use Coronavirus as an opportunity for evolution. Money is a human invention for exchange, we should move past ownership and truly share, evolve. We should take his advice for handling the virus seriously. Like him my greatest fear is for third world countries, they are that because they have little cash.
