The American businessman also said that, although he does not expect the virus to be completely eliminated by the following year, the cases should be reduced to "very small numbers."

Even though the billionaire was not surprised that developed countries prioritized their own citizens for vaccinations, he criticized the fact that, right now, people in their 30s can get vaccinated in those countries while those over 60 years old in Brazil or South Africa have yet to receive a shot.
