Se il Covid è diventato la causa, per milioni di persone, di una profonda crisi economica che porterà a effetti devastanti sull’economia delle famiglie e delle singole nazioni, c’è chi invece è diventato miliardario proprio “grazie” alla pandemia. Si tratta di scienziati, medici e imprenditori che lavorano nel settore healthcare, ossia dell’assistenza sanitaria, grazie alle cui scoperte sarà possibile salvare milioni di vite.

A stilare la classifica è la rivista economica Forbes, che ha pubblicato un articolo dal titolo Meet The 50 Doctors, Scientists And Healthcare Entrepreneurs Who Became Pandemic Billionaires In 2020 (I 50 dottori, scienziati e imprenditori sanitari diventati miliardari pandemici nel 2020). I nomi più in evidenza sono quelli di Uğur Şahin e Stéphane Bancel, gli ideatori, rispettivamente, dei vaccini di Pfizer e Moderna. Il primo guadagna vrtualmente 4,2 miliardi di dollari, il secondo 4,1 miliardi. Ci sono poi il professore di Harvars, Timothy Springer, e lo scienziato del MIT Robert Langer che hanno investito in Moderna. Tali vaccini hanno bisogno di milioni di fiale per essere trasportati in sicurezza, per cui tra i nuovi miliardari c’è anche Sergio Stevanato del Gruppo Stevanato che le produce.

Non ci sono solo i vaccini, ma anche i diversi trattamenti che aiutano i medici a curare i pazienti. Carl Hansen, CEO di AbCellera, è diventato miliardario perché la sua azienda produce un farmaco in grado di generare anticorpi che è stato approvato recentemente dalla FDA.
