Old footage of Bill Gates speaking about Covid-19 vaccines is circulating in social media posts that falsely link his comments to a wave of child deaths in Indonesia from kidney problems. The posts falsely claim the billionaire philanthropist predicted that side effects from the vaccines would appear after two years, apparently blaming the jabs for the deaths. However, Gates was in fact calling for authorities to approve Covid-19 vaccines quickly, not "predicting" side effects. Indonesian authorities linked the deaths to syrup medicines which have since been banned, not Covid-19 vaccines.
