The following article, Flashback: Bill Gates Calls for Complete ‘Shutdown’ of the United States Over COVID-19, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is worth $100 billion, give or take a billion or so. A national shutdown wouldn’t affect him in the slightest.
And yet, the liberal multi-billionaire is demanding that America close up shop from sea to shining sea because of coronavirus – because he knows better than you.
Here’s what’s up, via The Hill:
Gates wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that he has spoken with experts through his work with his charity who said a national policy would be more effective over having a hodgepodge of states issue stay-at-home orders while others remain more open. He argued that the country needs a “consistent nationwide approach to shutting down.”
“Despite urging from public health experts, some states and counties haven’t shut down completely. In some states, beaches are still open; in others, restaurants still serve sit-down meals,” Gates wrote.
“This is a recipe for disaster. Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere,” he added. “Until the case numbers start to go down across America — which could take 10 weeks or more — no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown.”
