#1 Please STFU Billy Boy.

#2 It's all being overseen by political hacks and is probably being farmed for taxpayer money by unscrupulous companies. Why wouldn't it be garbage?

#5 Bill at least understands GIGO.

#6 According to the billionaire, our nation's testing system is deeply flawed because of testing reimbursement rates that are determined by the government.

You mean government is the problem, Bill? Gee, first time I've heard of such a thing. (But you can stick your idea of a chip or vaccine right up your buddy Ghislaine Maxwell's backside.)

#7 Imagine the people overseeing the chinavirus situation being put in charge of development of the nation's telecom / internet system.

Fauci = Vinton Cerf / Claude Shannon / Bob Metcalfe

Your string and tin cans wouldn't work.

#11 Didn't Windows have a short-lived system named after me?

#12 Naturally, Billy's test is better than the commonly-used one jammed three feet up your nose.

#13 This sums up the "Trump disapproval rating" on chinavirus (or any disapproval rating for that matter.) Yes, some people feel he's mishandling it on the downside. The poll assumes that's everyone. In reality, a good percentage of those disapproves think he's mishandling it on the upside.

The quarantine4eveha religionist class is sure Gates has a better answer.

He doesen't.

#14 Facts about chinavirus crisis you will not see in the media:

There will be no reliable numbers on infections / hospitilizations / fatalities due to CV alone. Ever.

The worst numbers available will be published.

You will not see an interview with anyone who has not directly been in contact with a CV "sufferer."

Quarantine4Eveah and maskholes will fulminate any time any questions are asked.

#15 Bill Gates' peenie weenie will be sucked around the clock by the usual suspects.

#16 A question for Mr. Gates is anybody else’s test protocol better than America’s, or are they all below his standard?

#17 His standard, with a little help from a friend:

#19 Speaking of garbage, a quick review of face diapers may be in order, brought to you by the California Department of Health: Wildfire Smoke FAQs

"Should I wear a mask during a wildfire, even if it's not really smoky where I am?
Surgical masks, dust masks, bandanas or other face coverings do not offer protection from particle pollution. Inexpensive paper "comfort" or "dust" masks commonly found at hardware stores are designed to trap large particles and do not provide enough protection for your lungs.
Mask use may give the wearer a false sense of security, which might encourage too much physical activity and time spent outdoors. Also, wearing a mask may actually be harmful to some people with heart or lung disease because it can make the lungs work harder to breathe."

So, they can't keep out smoke but, somehow, keep out/in viruses?

#20 Gates was another source of funding for Wuhan. In a just country his wealth would be confiscated to provide for those financially strained by the pandemic.

#21 If Bill Gates ever makes something that doesn't suck, it'll be a vacuum cleaner.

#22 So, they can't keep out smoke but, somehow, keep out/in viruses?

These people believe that 2+2=5.
