Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates called for a nationwide shutdown on Tuesday, arguing it would be the most effective way to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

He argued that the country needs a "consistent nationwide approach to shutting down.".

“Despite urging from public health experts, some states and counties haven’t shut down completely.

In some states, beaches are still open; in others, restaurants still serve sit-down meals,” Gates wrote.

The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere,” he added.

"We can start now by building the facilities where these vaccines will be made," Gates wrote.

Over 189,000 people have been infected in the U.S. with the coronavirus, while roughly 3,900 have died. »
