According to Microsoft founder, multi-billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates, the world is not ready for the next pandemic, which could be ten times worse than the coronavirus pandemic. He told about this to the German edition of the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
Gates said he hoped the situation would be different in two years. He noted that much can be done, and more thorough preparation of the government could play a positive role already in this pandemic.
According to him, better diagnostic capabilities would make it possible to quickly identify those infected and significantly reduce the death toll, especially in the United States. At the same time, he stressed that it is necessary to respond to such threats globally.
Bill Gates was vaccinated against the coronavirus last week. He thanked everyone involved in the creation of the drug, and also reported on good health after receiving the first vaccination.
