OREANDA-NEWS. Microsoft founder Bill Gates said that most coronavirus tests in the USA are “a complete waste” because people have to wait days to get results. The businessman also said that deaths from COVID-19 could be significantly reduced by the end of the current year thanks to drugs.

“Right now, this thing where you wait more than three days, sometimes seven days to get a test, nobody should pay 1 dollar for that. That’s insane. You need to get it back as soon as possible so that somebody can change their behaviour, so they’re not infecting other people,” the entrepreneur said in an interview with the television channel CNBC.
