Reuters has reported that Gates doesn't want the vaccine to go straight to the "highest bidder", but instead he wants to see it distributed out to where its most needed. Gates says, "If we just let drugs and vaccines go to the highest bidder, instead of to the people and the places where they are most needed, we'll have a longer, more unjust, deadlier pandemic". Gates continues and says that leaders will have to make hard decisions based on equity and not market-driven factors.

The World Health Organization reported on July 6th that there's currently 21 coronavirus vaccine candidates in clinical trials and being tested on humans. Back at the start of the global pandemic, Gates pledged $250 million toward COVID-19 research, in a bout to "support development of diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines... and help mitigate the social and economic impacts of the virus." Back in April, Gates said he will lose "billions" on developing multiple coronavirus vaccines at once, more on that story can be found here.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
