Please read this note on Q&A with the one and only Bill Gates, “Guru” on social development issues apart from being a tech legend. He along with his lovely wife Melinda are identified as the most significant enablers at The middle Road. Bill discusses in depth the virtues of social distancing and personal hygiene (persistent hand-washing) in fighting COVID-19. He talks at length on the validity of various simulations, especially when compared to the ground realities comparing data from a couple of countries. I wish he would have also spoken on how to tackle the stigma attached to people who suffer during these epidemics especially in emerging and low-income countries. Bill is a global role model and his views are very important especially in the healthcare, climate action and education sector within the development sector. Under his and his wife’s leadership, many game-changing initiatives took place including Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.
