Microsoft founder Bill Gates announced the inevitability of a new pandemic. This is stated in his podcast, in which he discussed the consequences of COVID-19 with actress Rashida Jones and chief infectious disease specialist Anthony Fauci.
According to Gates, a new pandemic could begin in three years. He noted that mankind can be lucky and “it will happen in 20 years.”
The founder of Microsoft believes that the world will be more prepared for the next pandemic and humanity will no longer be “so stupid.”
In particular, algorithms for introducing quarantine will be worked out, systems for testing potential carriers of the virus will be improved.
Earlier in September, Gates said the coronavirus pandemic would likely end in 2022. According to him, he expects the approval of the American vaccine against the new infection by early 2021. If this happens, then by the summer of 2021 the United States will begin to return to normal life, and in 2022 the pandemic will decline.
In October, Gates predicted that the US epidemiological situation could worsen in the coming months, as trials of coronavirus vaccines could show drug ineffectiveness.
The Gates Charitable Foundation has allocated $ 650 million to fight the coronavirus. This became the largest donation among independent foundations.
