Bill Gates Spoke About a Pandemic In 2015 And Here’s What He Says About Omicron
How was Gates so sure that it would be a virus?
When asked by Muller, how he was able to foretell about this pandemic from half a decade ago, he replied: “There are a number of respiratory viruses, and from time to time one will come along. Respiratory diseases are very scary because you’re still walking around a plane, or a bus when you’re still infectious, unlike some other diseases like Ebola, where you are mostly in a hospital bed by the time viral load infects other people”.
Gates Now Warns People How the World Is Entering the Worst Part of Pandemic With The Emergence Of The New Omicron Variant
After the coronavirus infected nearly half the population of the world, things only became worse when new mutations in the original virus resulted in the birth of variants. First came the Delta variant, and now, the new Omicron variant which is said to be more infectious. Bill Gates made his next warning through a series of tweets on Twitter. Through these, he warned about how highly transmissible the Omicron variant is, and how he’s had to cancel plans for vacations because most of his close friends contracted the virus. He now believes that the world is entering the worst phase of the pandemic.
He Predicts That the New Variant Will Infect People in Every Country
In a series of follow-up tweets, Gates announced how the Omicron variant is spreading faster than any other documented virus in history. He predicts that it will soon be present in every country in the world. He explained that while it is still unknown how sick the new Omicron variant can make people, it shouldn’t be taken lightly. It may be weaker than the Delta variant but it can possibly cause the biggest surge that is yet to come.
He Urges People to Look Out For Each Other
Gates also mentioned that people need to look out for each other and not just their immediate families and relatives. He urged people to follow the COVID-19 norms and guidelines now more than ever. He also says that people should get vaccinated because even if it doesn’t protect them from getting infected or re-infected, it can still prevent them from falling seriously ill or dying.
