      End the corona-virus! For a start, no one needs to be a trillionaire (or a billionaire for that matter!) and secondly, I think if corona-virus has taught us anything, its that you can have all the money in the world, but it doesn’t matter if you can’t see your friends and family.

      As tempting as it would be to be the world’s first trillionaire, I think ending the corona virus would be my choice. I have realised how little importance money has in our life, friends and family are worth so much more!

      Ending coronavirus would definitely be my choice if I could have that wish! Don’t think anyone needs that much money. Getting rid of the coronavirus would change so much more in the world for everyone at the moment than me becoming a trillionaire!

      I would choose to end coronavirus!
      Perhaps the group of scientists who develop the successful treatment will become trillionaires and they can use the money to help re-build the economy, support our amazing frontline workers, and fund more scientific research 🙂

      End the corona virus without a doubt.. Although in theory you could still accept trillionaire money, donate most of it to research and healthcare and still be a millionaire! Theres more than one way to accomplish your goals!

      End corona virus. No one needs that much money and it only takes resources and opportunities away from other people if one person hords that much.

      Well, money is so fickle, and I could be a trillionaire even after the coronavirus era ends (yes I think in future this will be known as the coronavirus era 😉 ). So I would wish to end the coronavirus.

      Definitely end the coronavirus! To be quite honest, I think the concept of trillionaires, billionaires, even millionaires when there are people who don’t know how they’re going to afford their next meal is just obscene. I would be completely behind banning (at the very least) billionaires and everything above. No one needs that much money.
