‘It is impossible to overstate the pain that people are feeling now and will continue to feel for years to come… No one who lives through Pandemic 1 will ever forget it.’
That’s Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and co-chair of the Gates Foundation, sharing his latest thoughts on the coronavirus pandemic in an 11-page memo cited by the Seattle Times.
The good news, he said, is we can look forward to a “semi-normal” world over the next two months.
“People can go out, but not as often, and not to crowded places,” Gates wrote. “Picture restaurants that only seat people at every other table and airplanes where every middle seat is empty.”
He said he believes schools will reopen, but stadiums won’t.
