Djokovic was deported from Australia earlier this year after getting engaged in a visa and immunization scandal. The public figure now finds himself as the topic of a Bill Gates interview where he commented on Novak Djokovic’s vaccine stance.

Bill Gates has spoken in on tennis world number one Novak Djokovic’s vaccine attitude and the duty he considers the 34-year-old bears as a prominent personality.
Gates has regularly advocated for individuals to get their vaccines in order to subdue Covid, claiming to have expended a fortune on vaccine innovation.
Gates branded conspiracy theories about him and his supposed intentions for mass vaccination “crazy” in a wide-ranging interview with the BBC on Thursday, and said that it was “awful” to have strangers screaming at him in the street about the issue.
Gates was also questioned what he made of Djokovic’s refusal to be vaccinated, claiming his individual liberty of choice, and whether the Serbian tennis star had a bigger obligation as a prominent figure than merely deciding what to inject in his body.

“Well, being vaccinated helps the community you are in,” Gates began.
“They are not perfect in blocking infection, but they do reduce infection. So, it’s unfortunate that somebody’s health concerns are so extreme that they feel they can’t participate in that community protection,” the Microsoft co-founder added.
“If they are an inspirational and trusted person, then they are spreading that and it just makes it tougher to get the vaccination levels that we really need.
“So, I admire him in a lot of ways but I wish his views on vaccines weren’t that way,” Gates finished.
Djokovic was deported from Australia earlier this year after becoming engaged in a visa and immunization scandal as he prepared to retain his Grand Slam championship in Melbourne.
When Djokovic arrived in Australia, he assumed a medical exclusion would be sufficient to permit him to compete in the Australian Open, but a pushback resulted in him being detained and compelled to appear in court before being deported.
Djokovic stated he was “never against vaccination” but “always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body” in a February interview with the BBC.
Djokovic claimed he was willing to forgo more tournaments if necessary after watching generational rival Rafael Nadal overtake him in Grand Slam titles with 21 wins.
“The principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title or anything else” Djokovic insisted, adding: I’m trying to be in tune with my body as much as I possibly can.”
After the Covid protocols were abolished a few months later, Djokovic was free to compete in the French Open and Wimbledon.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner will play Hubert Hurkacz in the Madrid Open quarterfinals this week before preparing to defend his title at Roland-Garros, which begins on May 22.
His views , No Vax Djoknocovid are of billions of other people , moron
Can this coward Gates of hell , and his coward friends( the ones hiding , the back stabber ones) just go away.
These wickedly evil people, such as Gates, will not be able to walk down the street in peace. People of the world are awakening to see the evil being done to the people of the world and will no longer put up with it. These wicked people are all liars and will say or do anything to continue to hide their evil crimes. ALL liars will go down into the lake of fire to burn for eternity. It is written.
SLIGHT CORRECTION to Barney F. re ‘lake of fire’ & burning forever – – Scripture infers a ‘worm’ that dieth not , such as the case of an apple w a foreign entity (worm) inside it. On a human level implying an evil spirit dwelling inside. …….. the human dies, instantly, but the ‘foreign spirit’ will continue on, for it is of an eternal origin. shalom to all ….al jenkins
I guess that with the billions of dollars that Gates has, he doesn’t need to attend years and years of university in order to get his medical degree.
He can just buy one.
Why anyone listens to this idiot is beyond me.
