Former CEO of Microsoft, Bill Gates knows exactly when the ongoing Coronavirus crisis will end. The 64-year-old American business magnate stated that if rich countries like the US go into complete shutdown, the ongoing health crisis will end by summer. For poor countries, however, he said the situation will be a little more complicated. Considering it is difficult for people to practice self isolation in these countries as they live close by and some even live in slums, the virus might take time to go away. 

Citing the example of China, he suggested that a nationwide lockdown between six to ten weeks would be necessary to fight the deadly virus. He noted that China was able to control the situation after their six-week period of a shutdown. Following the lockdown, they started to open up again with very few recorded cases. That is exactly what Bill suggested for America – a serious nationwide shutdown, CNN reported. Rather than going state by state, Bill stressed that the entire country needs to be in this together. He asserted that the government just has to impose six-to-ten-weeks shutdown once and that would solve the issue.

He also stated that the US needs to work on increasing COVID-19 testing. According to the recent reports, the US has now surged past China and Italy to become the epicenter of the global coronavirus outbreak. US has over 159,000 confirmed infections, which is more than any other country in the world. About half of these cases in the US have been recorded from New York, making the city the epicentre of the American outbreak.

Explaining the numbers in NYC, health experts are pointing out that the city is severely affected because it is the largest and most densely populated city in America. According to a report published by Bloomberg last week, about 3.28 million Americans filed for unemployment insurance in the week ended March 21 because of the ongoing lockdown. Globally, the total number of infections recorded has reached 775,000. While 160,000 people have recovered, nearly 37,000 have lost their lives.
