Microsoft founder and former CEO Bill Gates is donating 1,000 Windows 10 ventilators to New York City amid the COVID-19 crisis but the the ventilators are giving patients the notorious “blue screen of death” known to Windows users the world over.
“It’s a slight bug,” Gates said in an interview about the faulty ventilators, “but we have some really great people working on it right now and we’re looking to get an update released as soon as possible.”
The error on the ventilator reads, “Your ventilator ran into a problem and needs to restart. We’re just collecting some error information and then we’ll restart for you. Hope you don’t die!”
The Windows 10 ventilators have killed an estimated 30 percent of all COVID-19 deaths in the New York area. The deaths are still being considered caused by COVID-19.
Gates recently stepped down from his position on the board of Microsoft to, “dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including development of biological weapons and viruses for the purposes of killing innocent people through population control methods.”
Gates hopes to reduce the population of New York by 10-15 percent by the time this crisis is over.
“I was disheartened to learn that there was a simple cheap cure to my coronavirus disease, but I think I can make up with those people who would be saved by killing more through my ventilators,” Gates added.
