(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – It’s too soon to be talking about whether China deserves blame for the #coronavirus outbreak and efforts to shift the focus onto Beijing are a ‘distraction,’ according to Bill Gates, who criticized ‘incorrect and unfair things’ said about the Communist-run country.
‘China did a lot of things right at the beginning, like any country where a virus first shows up,’ the Microsoft co-founder told CNN on Sunday.
‘They can look back and say where they missed some things.’
Gates, one of the world’s richest men, said that the US handled its #COVID-19 response ‘particularly poorly’ compared to other countries that have minimized the economic damage.
‘You know, some countries did respond very quickly and get their testing in place, and they avoided the incredible economic pain,’ he said.
‘It’s sad that even the US that you would have expected to do this well did it particularly poorly.
‘But it’s not time to talk about that.’
