BILL GATES: Yeah. In fact, the stimulus bill is the best opportunity to get that, because it'll showcase that in order to be a good citizen and stop the disease outside the United States, that the portion of resources required to do that is less than 1% of the stimulus bill, and it'll just be, you know, amongst the various measures to help out there. I think given how distracted the country is with an election and all the problems the pandemic has brought, that no stand alone bills are, you know, getting done for anything. And so being part of that overall thing I think that's how the people in the Congress who support these things have decided that's the most likely way for something to get done.
