With the spread of pandemic another news that has been circulating around the globe is the prediction made by Bill Gates for this year. Covid-19 is itself a huge crisis that many countries have found difficult to deal with and as per reports, Bill Gates mentioned that after covid-19 there are many more disasters waiting to attack the world. In an interview with the YouTube channel Veritaserum, Gates spoke about what he believes is waiting for us in the post pandemic period. The co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft spoke that there are high chances of bioterrorism or a huge climatic change that will affect the world a lot. Back in 2015 Gates said “if anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades it’s most likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war”. His words exactly came through last year with the outbreak of the coronavirus which proved to be very much deadly.
In an interview with Veritaserum, Gates was asked about his prediction which was made in 2015. Host Alexander questioned him by asking whether there is another pandemic waiting for us in the next hundred years and Gates pointed out that there are two of them. He also mentioned that one is a climatic change and every year there would be that toll of death cases which will be much greater than this pandemic that we are facing right now.
The second big thing that will affect the world widely as per Bill Gates is bioterrorism.” Somebody who wants to cause damage could engineer a virus so that the cost, the chance of running into this is more than that of naturally caused epidemic such as the current one” was what Gates said in the interview. He also mentioned that there will be more pandemics waiting for us in the future. If the measures are taken from now, the death toll can be lesser in future. Well the prediction that was made by him in the year 2015 did come true in 2019 and the fact that he mentioned there are more pandemics waiting to attack the world along with climatic changes and bioterrorism is something that is really stressful to know about. However it is yet to be known whether his predictions for the upcoming years will come true or not. The government has also been doing their best to fight the current pandemic and to bring the situation under control as vaccinations are also available now. Also many have been treated well with the medicines available.
