Bill Gates Negotiated Contact Tracing Bill – Six Months Before Covid19 Pandemic Began

Business Headlines Health Politics Technology U.S. World

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation helped negotiate who would land a lucrative $100 Billion government-backed contact tracing contract in August 2019 – four months before Covid19 officially broke out in China, and six months before it reached U.S. shores.

Representatives from the Gates Foundation met with U.S. Congressman Bobby Rush of Illinois in Rwanda in August 2019 to determine who would reap the benefits of the lucrative government contact tracing contract.

Rush introduced a $100 Billion H.R. 6666, COVID-19 Testing, Reaching and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act in Congress last month. The Act establishes a national Covid19 testing and tracing program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Rush traveled to Rwanda with his spouse from August 12th to 19th, 2019 to take part in talks and a week-long event paid for the the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
