Bill Gates has warned all of us of another pandemic…Give it a rest Bill! We are still stuck in COVID, now you want to create another chaos?
Gates said in an interview with CNBC that the future pandemic will be caused by a different pathogen than the coronavirus family. As vaccines become more widely available, he says, the danger of serious infections from COVID-19 has “dramatically reduced.”
“The chance of severe disease, which is mainly associated with being elderly and having obesity or diabetes, those risks are now dramatically reduced because of that infection exposure,” he said.
“We’ll have another pandemic. It will be a different pathogen next time,” he emphasized.
He said that the world would be in a better position to tackle future pandemics if investments were made in medical technology now.
“The cost of being ready for the next pandemic is not that large,” he said, adding: “It’s not like climate change. If we’re rational, yes, the next time we’ll catch it early.”
He also noted that it is “too late” to WHO’s goal of vaccinating 70 percent of the world’s population by mid-2022, but remains optimistic about the reduced severity of the disease. At the moment, roughly 61 percent of the world’s population has received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose.
“Next time we should try and make it, instead of two years, we should make it more like six months,” he said, adding that standardized platforms, including messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, would make that possible.
“The cost of being ready for the next pandemic is not that large. It’s not like climate change. If we’re rational, yes, the next time we’ll catch it early,” said Gates, who is the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates had previously warned against the Omicron wave back in December and frequently writes about climate change and global health crisis via the ‘Gates Notes’ blog. His foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, with his former wife, is known for its work on healthcare and reducing extreme poverty in the developing world.
Back in October 2021, Gates lauded India’s vaccination drive after the country passed the milestone of 100 crores (1 billion) vaccines. In a tweet, he praised the “efforts of India scientists” and said the country remains a steadfast partner” towards fighting COVID 19 pandemic.
Bill Gates finally says the truth out loud, argues there would not have been a pandemic at all if every country took the same iron-fisted, tyrannical approach as Australia.
