Gates: The world will suffer from a more dangerous epidemic than covid


Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and one of the richest people in the world, attended the Time 100 Summit a few weeks ago. He said another epidemic was likely in the next 20 years and that at least 1 billion should be allocated globally as part of precautionary measures and preparations for the epidemic.

“I would say that this epidemic could have killed 20 million people worldwide, one million in the United States, and it could have been much more deadly. We are fortunate that the death rate per case was about 0.2%,” Gates said. Told Time’s senior correspondent Alice Park during the Time 100 Summit in New York City.

Gates added that the next epidemic could have a much higher mortality rate than COVID-19.


How to prevent the next epidemic.

He advises the creation of a global “fire brigade” of 3,000 experts spread across the globe, recruiting for skills ranging from epidemics and genetics to drug and vaccine development and computer modeling to diplomacy.

The organization, which will likely work under the auspices of the World Health Organization, will be on permanent standby, ready to respond to an outbreak in any situation.


About the losses

“We have lost more than 14 14 trillion to this epidemic so far, and there will be benefits in non-epidemic years of seeing epidemics, including them in a much better way,” he said.


Gates also criticized Trump

Gates also criticized the initial US epidemic response, saying the Trump administration could have prevented unnecessary deaths by enforcing a medical-directed quarantine. In those early days, he said, the United States had instead “simply failed to practice and understand which group in government was involved in the large-scale assessment.”
