Bill Gates on Track to Grow His Fortune Through Foundation’s Ties to Vaccine Makers

By Jeremy Loffredo

A telling piece in The Nation this week reports some of the conflicts of interest the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation holds in the world’s quest for a COVID-19 vaccine. According to the article, the foundation’s investments in companies working to develop COVID-19 vaccines put Gates “in a position to potentially reap considerable financial gains from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Nation cites the example of the foundation’s $40 million stake in CureVac, a German pharmaceutical company whose stock soared 400% after going public in August. A similar Nation article from earlier this year reported the Gates Foundation also holds corporate stocks and bonds in drug companies Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and Sanofi, and the foundation gives these same companies charitable grants for projects like developing new drugs.

AstraZeneca, the British pharmaceutical company that gained an exclusive license to control the COVID-19 vaccine produced by Oxford University research, is considered a frontrunner in the vaccine race. According to The Nation: “Gates himself described his foundation as intimately involved in the partnership between AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford.” Gates had the leverage to push the university … because the foundation is one of the founders and largest funders of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, which in turn funds the University of Oxford’s vaccine development (to the tune of some $384 million).”

AstraZeneca also received $750 million from the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, an organization the Gates Foundation helped set up and continues to fund to this day. Despite questions on the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine, governments worldwide have already bought it, on the taxpayers dime.

Also notable is the Gates Foundation’s grants, totaling $20 million, to Moderna, whose vaccine has also been described as a COVID-19 frontrunner. The foundation has a “global health project framework agreement” with the company, agreeing to give it up to $100 million to develop its mRNA technology, in exchange for receiving “certain non-exclusive licenses,” which have yet to be publicly specified.

Even with all this, Gates doesn’t publicly disclose his conflicts of interest when appearing on TV as an expert on COVID-19. And, as The Nation reports, when Gates wrote an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, he simply listed his conflicts of interest as “numerous.” According to Forbes, Gates has seen his personal net worth increase by more than $10 billion since the onset of the pandemic.

Despite the Gates Foundation’s candid declaration to pursue “mutually beneficial opportunities” with vaccine manufacturers, it is rare to find reporting in mainstream media on the foundation’s conflicts of interest. This may be because the foundation funds a number of major media outlets, including NPR, BBC, ABC and Al Jazeera, as well as publications like The Daily Telegraph and the Financial Times. The Guardian’s entire “Global Development” section is made possible through a partnership with the Gates Foundation […]

    • I lived in Seattle for 16 years, nomad, and am well aware of the questionable role the law firm Preston, Gates, and Ellis played in preparing every single bond the City of Seattle placed on the local ballot. Gates senior’s firm also played a major role in helping city developers transform a community controlled African American Heritage Museum into a bunch of condominium’s. It was also Gates senior who help Bill junior prepare Microsoft’s initial stock offering.

      Although it hardly receives any attention any more, Gates (who had this little problem of stealing other people’s inventions for Microsoft) was forced to step down as Microsoft CEO because he was in was in major trouble with the Justice Department over antitrust violations. Since then he his turned his criminal mind to the immense profits to be made from a corrupt public health system.

  1. gates has been conjuring 33 million dead from a coming pandemic for years. as we know 33 is a magic number for occultists. i wonder what branch he belongs to? anybody know?


    • His predecessors failed to convince US intelligents (sic) about any magic 6-million number of alleged victims in His holocaust myth, so WHO among us is so stupid as to believe His Covidian Criminal Conspiracy will get rid of (m)any of those He still loves to hate?
