Bill Gates is able—and willing—to lose big money funding factories for COVID-19 vaccines

Wealthy individuals typically don’t set out to waste billions of dollars, but amid the COVID-19 pandemic, that’s exactly what Bill Gates is willing to do.
 
Through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the billionaire Microsoft founder and philanthropist plans to help fund factories for seven promising vaccines, even before seeing conclusive data. That’s despite the fact that two of the programs—at most—will make it through to final development and deployment, he said on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
