Why Would I Want to Know Their Location? Bill Gates Hits Back at COVID Conspiracy Theorists [VIDEO]

In addition to being a technological magnate, Bill Gates also keeps up with the latest in medical science. So it is no surprise that the Microsoft founder has been an advocate for COVID vaccination.

Of course, promoting vaccines has made Gates a target of right-wing conspiracy theorists. These theorists push the idea that the billionaire is deceiving them. During a Friday interview on CNN, Anderson Cooper asked Gates about the lunacy of the anti-vax movement.

Cooper asked, “You rightly champion [the vaccine], obviously it’s a wonder of modern science. But there’s this paradox that the speed at which it was created also increased perhaps some hesitancy, and I guess and has fueled these conspiracy theories. How do you deal with conspiracy theories? People believe you’re tracking people through microchips inserted into the vaccine.”

“Simple explanations are kind of fun to click on,” Gates responded. “The one about tracking people, I don’t know why they think I’m interested in knowing people’s locations. If it’s holding people back from getting vaccinated, then that’s tragic.”
