Bill Gates said that in 20 years, humanity could face a new pandemic again

Bill Gates has spent money over the years fighting diseases that threaten the people of poorer countries. Thanks to his experience, he warns us that this is only the beginning of a long journey, and two decades from now we may be facing such a danger.

The co-founder of Microsoft has regularly warned that nations around the world must prepare for the coming pandemic as if it were war. His presentation at the TED conference five years ago was once again a YouTube hit - the billionaire warned the world about the threats coming not only from biological weapons but also from viruses themselves.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Bill Gates said that the current pandemic is the biggest event that many people have faced in their lives. According to him, such an epidemic may repeat itself in about 20 years.  At the same time, the billionaire made no secret that he was optimistic - in his opinion, humanity will not ignore the recurrence of the threat and will be prepared accordingly next time. But Gates regrets that the world population must pay such a high price these days.

For Gates, vaccinations are a critical element in fighting the current pandemic and preparing for further threats. "The vaccine is critical. Until we have it, the situation will not go back to normal," he told American public television PBS. However, he is not hiding the fact that the vaccine may have to wait more than a year. But in any case, it is worth making every effort to get the vaccine back as soon as possible.
