It is irrelevant whether I received money from Gates – Prof. Karim

Did Prof. Salim Abdool Karim receive funding from Gates? Here’s his response..

It is irrelevant whether I received money or not! 

Even if I did, what has that got to do with Covid-19? My view is whether I received money or not is irrelevant to Covid-19. It doesn’t impact on my objectivity or my scientific credibility on the issue of Covid-19, in any way.

I am not answering the question because I don’t feel I should justify whether I received funding from the foundation or not. That should be irrelevant to my scientific stature and what I say about Covid-19.
