Speaking at the “Goalkeepers 2022” event, Bill Gates criticized conspiracy theories about him wanting to track people: “This whole tracking thing, why would I want to track you? I don’t know, you know. Do I have time to track all these people?”

One day later while speaking at the “Forbes 400 Philanthropy Summit” Gates said, “I have a group that tracks what’s on the web that’s talking about things that connect to me… Overwhelmingly during the pandemic, 95% was all the conspiracy theory stuff. It is calming down now.”
