The billionaires are close to buying a company which has managed to develop a 10-minute COVID-19 test that it aims to make for as little as $1.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his way to giving an update on relaxing restrictions imposed on the country during the coronavirus covid-19 pandemic at a virtual press conference inside the Downing Street Briefing Room in central London on July 5, 2021. - Prime Minister Boris Johnson will on Monday unveil a plan to lift most if not all of England's pandemic restrictions from July 19, as he urged the public to learn to live with the coronavirus - Sputnik International, 1920, 12.07.2021
Why Would George Soros and Bill Gates Interfere With BoJo's Foreign Aid Cuts?
Although the company has received a CE mark (Conformité Européenne) for its tests, they have yet to be approved for use in the UK or the US. Mologic was earlier given £1 mln by the UK government to develop its tests, but has accused the authorities of "stonewalling" its efforts to get the test used en mass in the country.
British media earlier reported that a group of philanthropists, including Gates and Soros, will offset the fallout from the UK government’s decision to reduce this year's spending on overseas aid from 0.7 percent of national income to 0.5 percent.
