Bill Gates: The next outbreak? We’re not ready


In 2014, the world avoided a horrific global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers — plus, frankly, thanks to some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now’s the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, “There’s no need to panic … but we need to get going.”

  2. We've never been "ready"
    Annual flu deaths worldwide

    Flu Kills 646,000 People Worldwide Each Year: Study. Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate that's higher than the previous one of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year.

  3. Bill gate he is one step forward than us bcs he reads he make researchers, he is my favorite mentor and teacher, 😅😊

  4. Bill Gates has made billions living in America, operating in our system of democracy. Think about him and all American billionaires putting a few billion each into a “Coronavirus fund” to solve this national problem. He certainly will have enough left for him to get along. Daah!

  5. Cause I’m gonna live
    I don’t know how I’m always broke
    What I just did not even a black will give me a dollar
    So no maybe I don’t have their vote

  6. "There's no need to panic or hoard cans of spaghetti…"
    Okay Bill, you try telling that to the Americans hoarding toilet paper instead lol.

  7. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Viruses are not contagious. Dont believe anything at all on the media. Fear is a weapon to control you.
    It starts like this: bacteria are scavengers, janitors of the body. When the body accumulates modern toxins from poor diet and medications/vaccines, the bacteria eat those toxins to clean up their house– your body.when the cells of the body are so sickly having accumulated so much toxin, the bacteria die off, and thus for plan B, the cells produce a sollevent, like soap, to scrub the body clean. These sollevents are what the medical industry call viruses. The pill pushers operate on false principles. They attack the body rather than nurture it. For instance. Cancer is good, it is created by the body for a reason, like viruses. Cancer is your body's ability to adapt to the toxic medium which industry and straying from our primal roots in diet can create.Cancer keeps you alive but the doctors are all trained by pharama companies to attack cancer. Viruses are not contagious bacteria have never been harmful. Virsuses are sollevents, that is all.
    The only way you can transmit a virus, especially if it is a virus such a the swine flu, something which is of another species, is if you inject it by vaccine. If you want more information I reccomend looking up aajanous vonderplanitz on the swine flu, and for more about bacteria and cancer, loop up alex loglia. Thank you 🙂

    Note, in theory the black plague was caused by accumulated heavy metals from burning coal in houses everyday, and all of the unhealthy industrial practices at that time

  8. People are somehow falling for the conspiracy theorists bs (just like in the movie Contagion watch it) and its harmful. This man donates and helps a lot (unlike many other billionaires)! He has simply spoken facts in this video and raised concern that the governments should have listened to, he cannot save the world from a pandemic,governments should be prepared and help the private sector. Please use common sense and logic and stop watching conspiracy theories that lie or manipulate information to fit their narrative.

  9. He's suspicious in my opinion… Owns the Vaccine Patent as well as the vaccine manufacturers and coincidently attended the billionaire population control meeting… Sketchy.

  10. The problem is not the technology the problem are humans emselves. They are stuck in the evolution courve. Instead of going forward, we keep going backwards, like troglodites. This has been happening since a while now, way before this.

  11. With a focus on the third world, Mr. Gates forgot to mention a giant communist country such as China. From the New England Journal of Medicine: “This particular coronavirus may be new, but we have seen it all before. A novel pathogen emerged in China? That’s no surprise: China has given rise to many past pandemics.”

  12. Did you guys hear that one part at 4:30? "The source of the virus could be a natural epidemic…..of it could be from bioterrorism." Wtf?
