In an interview with NBC News this week, Microsoft CEO Bill Gates warned the world “won’t return to normal” until “a lot people” take a second-generation Covid vaccine – and that could still be years away.

Gates acknowledged first-generation vaccines may not be sufficient effective in eradicating the virus, so a second wave of “super-effective” vaccines may be necessary to help eliminate it on a global basis.

“The only way we’ll get completely back to normal is by having, maybe not the first generation of vaccines, but eventually a vaccine that is super-effective, and that a lot of the people take, and that we get the disease eliminated on a global basis,” said Gates.

We won’t be able to “build back in a positive way” until then, Gates said.
