Bill Gates on Fox News
During the FOX News Sunday interview with Chris Wallace, Bill Gates shattered the claims of Donald Trump and called the travel ban move one of the reasons for the COVID-19 outbreak. He argued, the ban, made all the U.S. citizen travelling abroad to come back to the U.S. at short notice.
It caused thousands of people to rush back to their home towns. Unfortunately, there was no proper testing done, neither they talked about the quarantine situation.

“We created this rush, and we couldn’t test or quarantine those people. And so that seeded the disease here. The ban probably accelerated that, the way it was executed.”
