Bill Gates Warns Next Two Threats to Humanity After Predicting A Global Epidemic In 2015

In an interview given by Microsoft Chief Bill Gates, he warned that there could be two potential future dangers that could probably be worse than the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It’s interesting to know that back in 2015, he did warn that the world was unprepared for the next epidemic as he predicted the rapid spread of ‘a virus where people feel enough while they’re infectious that they get on a plane or they got to a market’.

Gates now predicts two more threats to humanity- Climate Change and Bioterrorism

Back in 2015, Gates gave a TED talk entitled ‘The Next Outbreak? We’re Not Ready’, and then came the coronavirus outbreak in November 2019. Now, Gate’s recent prediction doesn’t have any good news either. He has come to believe that besides this wretched virus, the greatest threats to humanity will be climate change and bioterrorism. In this latest prediction, he spoke of a virus similar to COVID-19 and stressed that the world needs to be prepared for it.

What Gates had said in 2015

Gates said: “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war. Not missiles, but microbes”. Now, once again, he has made yet more bold predictions and it would be in the best interest of the world to listen to him this time. “Could I have been more persuasive? 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 on a plane, a bus when you’re infectious. Unlike some other diseases like Ebola where you are mostly in a hospital bed by the time viral load infects other people.”

He made an appearance on the YouTube channel Veritasium and gave his next greatest predictions

He appeared on YouTube channel Veritasium alongside the host Derek Muller and said: “There’s no good feeling that comes with something like this saying ‘I told you so’” After that he went on to offer his predictions for the future by telling Muller: “One is climate change. Every year that would be a death toll even greater than we have had in this pandemic”.

He then added that-“Bio-terrorism. Somebody who wants to cause damage could engineer a virus and that means the cost, the chance of running into this is more than the naturally-caused epidemics like the current one”.

Gates said that there is no way to stop future pandemics

Yes, Bill Gates did say that humans will not be able to stop future pandemics, but what they can do is increase their preparedness so that they never have a death toll like this present one ever again.
