Gates: "Almost all" vaccines for COVID-19 will be effective

Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is optimistic about the development of COVID-19 vaccines. The first two pharmaceutical companies to be licensed by the FDA for the vaccines they developed are Pfizer and Modern - their vaccines are 95% effective against COVID-19. But Gates has high hopes for other vaccines that have not yet made headlines - the vaccines developed by AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax.

"Almost all vaccines will operate with very high levels efficiencyGates said in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria on Sunday. "I am optimistic that by February all vaccines are likely to be effective and safe."

"We have to be very careful in the next six months," Gates said, adding that he believes the daily death rate from the virus will be more than 2.000 people for much of his period winter - talking about daily cases in the US. He also discussed issues related to testing and distribution vaccines, but believes these challenges will be met.

"Somehow, I think the logistics issue will be resolved," Gates said. "Over time, we will reach the level of 70 percent (and above) we need to stop the spread of COVID-19."

Gates says his own Thanksgiving dinner will be very family-friendly and will videotape his family members who will not be present. He urged them Americans to wear their masks and keep their social distance while we wait for the vaccine to be released.
