“While Bill Gates has suggested that Imperial College reporting is if anything too optimistic, its projections have been widely criticised as unneccessarily alarmist – one analysis finds that the College has exaggerated the risk by 131 times. Such criticism has not stopped governments imposing extraordinary measures on the back of Imperial College modelling. The College is heavily funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation: the total amount by 2018 has been calculated as $184,872,226.99. The Gates Foundation is the second biggest donor to Imperial College after the Wellcome Trust, whose donations amount to $400,322,589.00. The Wellcome Trust works closely with the Gates Foundation in a number of endeavours, such as the founding of CEPI, whose mission statement reads, ‘The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation’s (CEPI’s) mission is to stimulate and accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases and enable access to these vaccines for people during outbreaks.’
