Gates: Entire US should shut down over COVID-19

Microsoft founder Bill Gates suggested the entire United States follow China's example and shuts down like Hubei province amid the coronavirus pandemic to avoid exponential growth of infections.

In a CNN town hall on the pandemic, the billionaire said that the 6-week shutdown of the epicenter of the outbreak in China was very effective. "If we do it right, we only have to do it once," according to Gates, who added that "the sooner you engage in a shutdown, the easier it is to get to that peak."
