Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called on Boris Johnson to apologise for his comments on care homes.Sir Keir said: “On Monday, when asked why care home deaths had been so high the Prime Minister said, and I quote, ‘too many care homes didn’t really follow the procedures in the way that they could have’.“That has caused huge offence to frontline care workers. It has now been 48 hours. Will the Prime Minister apologise to care workers?”Mr Johnson replied: “The last thing I wanted to do is to blame care workers for what has happened or for any of them to think that I was blaming them because they’ve worked hard, incredibly hard, throughout this crisis, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our country and doing an outstanding job.”“And as he knows, tragically, 257 of them have lost their lives.“And when it comes to taking blame, I take full responsibility for what has happened.”

Bill Gates talked about the COVID-19 vaccine. According to Gates the "final hurdle" to distributing a COVID-19 vaccine will be ensuring that people decide to take it. Gates said testing vaccine candidates with a wide variety of populations and age groups can prove challenging. Still, Gates believes that "a lot" of people will take a vaccine when one becomes available. According to Business Insider the billionaire believes herd immunity can be achieved if 70% to 80% of people take the vaccine.
The oldest daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates, Jennifer Gates, talked about growing up with privilege in an interview. She said: “It's about using those opportunities and learning from them to find things that I'm passionate about.” Jennifer said she hopes to make “the world a little bit of a better place” with that privilege. Forbes ranked Bill Gates as the second wealthiest person in the world with a net worth of $108 billion.
Alex Wong/Getty Images Bill Gates warns that COVID-19 infection rates will hit another wave in the fall, around October and November, when temperatures cool. The situation is made worse by the politicization of the virus, which has caused some people to refuse to wear masks, abide by social distancing guidelines and even to pressure others not to wear masks. Gates also said he was disappointed that the US, under Trump, has not taken a leadership role in preventing and ending the pandemic.
Billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates has pledged a quarter billion dollars to fight coronavirus pandemic. But, that has not stopped a wild conspiracy theory about him to go viral. According to Business Insider, the conspiracies that have claimed he knew about the pandemic beforehand or was even responsible for it. The crux of the conspiracy is that Gates wants to implant tiny microchips in every human through the coronavirus vaccine.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson hosted a global vaccine summit on Thursday, urging nations to pledge funding for vaccinations against infectious diseases to help the poorest countries tackle the crises including COVID-19.
Boris Johnson has urged world leaders to join together and focus their “collective ingenuity” on the search for a coronavirus vaccine that is affordable and available to all. The Prime Minister made the call as he opened the Gavi vaccine alliance summit seeking to raise £6 billion to immunise 300 million children against infectious diseases within five years.
