“Justice League” wasn’t the most successful superhero movie but had a pretty decent “meme” potential. The dialogue on the picture below is pretty much applicable in the coronavirus situation we face right now.
Money is the superpower Batman possessed and it plays a major role in the fight with the pandemics. One of the richest people in the world, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was one of the experts on Netflix documentary “Explained:The Next Big Pandemics”.
As he told, it wasn’t a matter of it is going to happen. The question was when. So, three or four months after the show aired the outbreak has happened. And all the technologies that were mentioned and omitted in this blog post tend to improve exponentially when they get financial aid.
Reportedly,Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter (and digital payments platform Square), recently announced that he will donate $1 billion worth of equity in Square to his Start Small LLC to fund COVID-19 relief around the world.
That is very impressive move by one of the most respected C-level managers in the world as he sum equates to roughly 28 percent of his current net worth, or about $3.6 billion. The announcement marks the most significant philanthropic effort from the 43-year-old tech executive in his career.
Naturally, Jack Dorsey is not the only one who needs to contribute. The Wellcome Trust, the London-based medical research charity, is calling on big businesses to donate $8bn (£6.4bn) for research into developing diagnostic tests, therapies and vaccines to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
Jeremy Farrar, the director of The Wellcome Trust, said a huge investment in scientific research was “the only exit strategy” to save millions of lives and drag the global economy out of an inevitable recession.
