Covid-19 has revealed a pre-existing pandemic of poverty that benefits the rich

quote [ Even high-income countries with ample resources have failed to seriously reduce poverty rates.
The coronavirus has merely lifted the lid off the pre-existing pandemic of poverty. ]

Another one on poverty – summarizing decades of overly optimistic views. Interestingly, this Guardian section is supported by the Gates foundation.

I don't get the implication of "Interestingly, this Guardian section is supported by the Gates foundation."

Then you should listen to/read the Citations Needed Episodes I put in my last post.

Because Bill Gates wants to put secret microchips inside everybody during the vaccinations. And kill them with the vaccinations as well, because of overpopulation. Which all seem a bit self-defeating, but you can afford to waste money when you're that rich.

Another good, related episode of Citations Needed. It's no an accident that poverty was getting swept under the rug.

I'm pretty sure that we already knew that Human society is a vile pandemic of inequality.
