Google co-founder’s efforts to beat influenza are nothing to be sneezed at

Now that Larry Page has stepped down as CEO of Google’s mother or father firm Alphabet, he could possibly be following in Bill Gates’s footsteps and tackling world well being challenges.

According to charity and enterprise paperwork obtained by TechCrunch, the billionaire co-founder of Google has been quietly waging a war on the flu.

Thousands of youngsters and academics in San Francisco’s Bay Area will obtain free flu photographs at their colleges this 12 months from Shoo The Flu, which describes itself as a “community-based initiative.” In reality, it’s wholly funded by a for-profit firm managed by Page. Another of his corporations, Flu Lab, is supporting multi-million greenback efforts to develop a common flu vaccine. Neither effort makes public Page’s function in them.
